NOVEMBER FAIR TRADE CRAFT FAIR
Each November we partner with Ten Thousand Villages, the world's oldest and largest fair trade organization and host a Fair Trade Artisan Craft Fair. Ten Thousand Villages mission, and ours, is to alleviate poverty through trade, rather than aid, and create hope for artisans in developing countries to build better lives for their family and community. Many volunteer opportunities are offered at this event.

WISDOM AND WINE is an adult faith formation event that allows adults to come together in a relaxed atmosphere for social time and spiritual development. Attendees will participate in engaging discussion following the presentation on a current Catholic topic. A certified and sustainable fair trade wine tasting will complement the event featuring wines from wine growers in developing countries that seek to rely on stable income for their families, pay workers fairly, provide working environments that are safe and free from child labor, forced overtime and harassment. Fair trade coffees, dips and chips, also served.
