Do you recall Children’s Lenten Project 2017?  Inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si’ – Care for our Common Home, we challenged ourselves to fast differently, fast from mindless consumption of the earth’s resources by using the Carbon Fast Calendar of Ideas and our alms went to support the work of the  Trees That Feed Foundation.

Their mission is to plant food-bearing trees, to feed people, create jobs, and benefit the environment.
