Since October of 2009, STB parishioners have supported the San Lucas Mission by purchasing Fair Trade coffee from the San Lucas coffee cooperative. Prior to the start of the coop, the local farmers were at the mercy of fluctuating markets and unscrupulous buyers, never knowing if the crop they raised would be sufficient to support their families. Fr. Greg consulted with them, determined with them the price they would need to feed, house and educate their families. This is the price that has been given, regardless of the market prices. The purchases made by STB members supports the farmers in being self-sustaining in providing for their families.
