The purchasing of Fair Trade Goods exemplifies respecting life based on Justice. St. Augustine told us that charity is no substitute for justice withheld. When we buy Fairly Traded Products, we are saying that we Respect the Dignity of the Life of the whole person and all its ramifications. We respect fair wages, educational opportunities, development of leadership roles, sustainable farming, health care, and strong families in the most marginalized communities throughout the world. Justice & exploitation cannot exist side by side.
The Coffee Ministry of St. Monica-St. George Parish supports and sells fair trade coffee products. Look for additional selling times in the church bulletin.
