St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church

At St. Martin of Tours we work with Catholic Relief Services Fair Trade to bring the awareness of our Catholic Social Teachings to action. By choosing to serve fair trade coffee, hosting annual fair trade shopping opportunities and cooking Lenten meals using fair trade products we are instilling the importance that everyone can make a difference with just a purchase.
