Hundreds of parishioners, friends, volunteers and Fair Trade partners attended the annual Fair Trade Festival at St. Michael on October 5, 2014. There was a wide array of consumer items provided by Fair Trade retailers and artisans from around the world and our local community. Attendees were able to shop in a relaxed environment while enjoying Larry’s coffee and snacks from SpicedCube.
Each of us is called to do our part as consumers to ensure that the economy works for everyone. Fair Trade creates opportunities for us to respond to this call in a small but significant way every day through the choices we make as consumers. When we make the conscious decision to purchase Fair Trade items, we are putting the values of Catholic Social Teaching into action, and working to realize our vision of economic justice.
Special thanks to Fr. Tom Fenlon, Global Fellow from Catholic Relief Services (CRS) for his participation, to Larry’s Coffee, our local CRS partner for donating the coffee we served, and to PIP Printing and SpiceCubed Catering for their generous support of this special event.
