Annunciation's Discovery Center

Annunciation's Discovery Center, located in the heart of South Minneapolis, was added to serve the growing needs of young families in that area. This school partnership provides a unique opportunity to “buddy” with students in the elementary school and benefit from their wonderful facilities.
