Fair Trade Products such as the coffee, tea, and chocolate offered by the Social Action Committee, ensure that small farmer co-ops in disadvantaged countries receive more profit for their crops. Please consider purchasing these goods in Gannon Hall the first weekend of the month after Mass or during the week at the Parish Office.
