In June Sister Lorraine Burns, SSND, will step down as executive director of Notre Dame Learning Center, which provides free tutoring services for at-risk Rochester youths.

Sister Burns and other area School Sisters of Notre Dame founded the center in 2003, and it is operated as a ministry of the congregation's Atlantic-Midwest Province.

Sister Burns will be succeeded by Sister Evelyn Breslin, SSND, who most recently has been the executive assistant at School of the Holy Childhood. Previously, Sister Breslin was an administrator and teacher at Bishop Kearney High School in Irondequoit.

The learning center’s three full-time School Sisters of Notre Dame train and assist more than 80 volunteer tutors in tutoring Rochester children from public and private schools after school and in summer programs. Additional math and reading tutors are always needed; for details, call 585-254-5110 or e-mail ndlc@frontiernet.net.
