St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral, San Diego, CA

“…and what does God require of you but to do justice…” (Baptismal Covenant). Fair Trade is a way that faith communities can live out a life of justice. We believe that our use of Fair Trade coffee and tea and sales of chocolate, tea, coffee and snacks helps us live out our baptismal covenant.
