Sister Parish

Our sister parish is Parroquia La Natividad de la Virgen María in the municipality of Santa María Chiquimula in the Totonicapán department of the Republic of Guatemala. La Natividad is a Jesuit parish.

SFX provides support primarily through our fair trade program. The proceeds from our twice monthly fair trade sales and from our annual Fair Trade Christmas Market benefit La Natvidad.


Fair Trade

Parishioners organize and sell Fair Trade goods as a way to promote aligning some of our material purchases with our Christian values.

Fair Trade offers coffee, tea, chocolate, cards, and some textiles.

Proceeds go directly to the needs of our Sister Parish La Natividad in Santa Maria Chiquimula, Guatemala.

We sell on the first and third Sundays after the morning masses from September to May, unless otherwise noted.

Coffee is available by order from June-August.

Christmas Market
Our annual Fair Trade Christmas Market occurs on a Sunday in late November or early December. Local Fair Trade vendors will be present and 10% of their sales will be donated to support our sister parish-La Natividad
