The Growing Project is a Christian response to world hunger helping us to achieve our mission, “Loved by God…We love this World”. Parishioner donations are used to provide seed, fertilizer, and fuel to grow and harvest soybeans on local farms and hay on our parish property. The revenue generated from the sale of the soybeans and the hay bales is used to assist farmers in some of the poorest areas of the world; teaching them techniques to grow and develop a lasting source of nutritional food. The Growing Project is currently partnering with “Kindness in a Box”, working in some of the remote Quechua villages in the Andes in Peru. Parishioners are invited to make monetary donations and contact any local farmers and inform them of the project – partnership with additional local farmers is welcomed!
Time: Committee members meet twice a year to assess status of project and discuss future direction; participate in the blessing of the field; spread the word about the project to fellow parishioners.
