Next weekend’s Poor Box Collection goes to The Red Wiggler Community Farm, which is a sustainable farm where people with and without developmental disabilities come together to work, learn, and grow healthy food. Their website is (https://redwiggler.org/). The farm is also founding a Care Farming Network to encourage other farms to provide work and therapeutic farming opportunities for marginalized individuals. The website to the Care Farming Network: https://carefarmingnetwork.org/
Donations to the Reg Wiggler is an awesome way to embody Pope Francis’ vision for integral ecology in Laudato si: “Today, however, we have to realize that a true ecological approach always becomes a social approach; it must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor” (LS 49)
To contribute, the Poor Box is located in the narthex of the church at the bottom of the choir loft stairs. – Thank you for your kind generosity.
