Saint John’s Episcopal Church
As the First Fair Trade Congregation in Mankato, we educate on behalf of Fair Trade and coordinate our efforts with those of the Millennium Development Goals. We are motivated by our faith and by Jesus’ call to love one another. We seek to address issues of social justice, the environment, critical healthcare, programs to keep girls in school, and support women in leadership development.
