October is Fair Trade Month!
During October we would like to highlight the connections between Fair Trade and our faith. Here are some of the ways you can live Catholic Social Teaching by buying Fair Trade.
Fair Trade Month Reflection Calendar
We've put together a calendar of reflections so you can connect Fair Trade to your faith each day this month. Take a few moments each day to notice your buying habits. How might you change your purchases to benefit the people who make the things you buy and use each day?
Prayer and Reflections on Fair Trade
Christian Concern for One World, a website dedicated to building global solidarity, has compiled several prayers, poems, and reflections on Fair Trade.

Catholic Relief Services has just announced a new partnership with Ten Thousand Villages fair trade stores! To celebrate, join us to shop on October 16!
