Another story of a family who attended English Classes at Alpha and Omega.

“Pennsylvania was established on the principle of religious freedom. Add to that the religious dimension of Lancaster with the Amish tradition, and you get one of the most tolerant places in the country. Yes, we are welcoming people that look different. But they don’t look any more different from the norm than an Amishman does.”

Rick Gray – Former Lancaster City Mayor

Our hope is that refugees and immigrants from around the world find Lancaster to be a welcoming place where they can start a new life, and we hope our English Class can be a small part of that.
