The newly established Fair Trade Campaign, on behalf of the Mission Parish, will hold a Fair Trade Faire on Sunday October 29, 2017! The event will be held in the California Room, a 6,000 sq foot carpeted hall, beneath St. Francis Chapel. Your enterprise is invited to participate in the event.

The Mission Parish, the oldest Church in California, has a rich tradition of helping the less fortunate; with the Fair Trade program seen as an extension of these efforts. Currently, the Parish has seven Masses on Sunday morning starting at 7:00 AM and ending with a Noon Mass. The ideal time, therefore, would be an opening at 7:45 am and ending at 1:30 pm. The attendees at these services will number in the 2,500 range; granted all will not come.

We, as I am sure you, would like to make this a rip-roaring success!! Therefore, we want to have plenty of advance time to publicize the happening with top vendors, such as your organization. We would like to have 12 to 15 tables/sectors for vendors. Since this is our first time we will be pleased to have you look at the California Room and offer suggestions on the set-up. Know that St. Martin’s Parish in La Mesa has been most helpful in assisting us, so you can expect (hopefully) a similar program.

Please contact me at the above e-mail address relative to reserving a spot on the 29th of October and for a meeting time on the site. I look forward to hearing from you! A $25.00 donation to the victims of Human Trafficking will be asked from each vendor. http://www.missionsandiego.org/events/fair-trade-fair-mission/
