Advent 2009 - Rome Fair Trade

During this season, the Economic Justice Working Group is encouraging a renewed effort related to Fair Trade products. We request that Promoters urge curia and generalate communities to purchase Fair Trade products. We hope that a practice begun in Advent may continue throughout the year.
The attached materials have been revised from last year's Lenten campaign. They are appropriate for any season. Please share them as widely as possible.

Click here to download the latest update of the Fair Trade booklet for printing ("print on both sides").
A cover letter for this Advent season 2009 is also provided.
