December 7 – December 22

Once again, this holiday season, you will be able to purchase a gift for a loved one while supporting those in need. Everything from artisan produced products and fair-trade items from other countries to homegrown food items and personal care products made right here in Michigan. Come shop at our tables in the Activities Center before and after masses. First come, first serve! This year the market will be held over ONLY three weekends and there will not be a secondary order of products to replenish our inventory, so please shop early and shop often. We have a wonderful assortment of soup mixes, jams, soaps, balms, candles, jewelry, ornaments, chocolate, purses, scarves, dog treats, pottery, Jim Dalton’s handmade bowls and a variety of miscellaneous home décor products. As usual our talented buyers have chosen some unique one-of-a-kind gifts for your shopping pleasure.

In the coming weeks we’ll highlight some of the efforts of each organization we’re supporting in the bulletin and on the website: Catholic Community Response Team (CCRT), Dutton Farm, Fair Trade Crafts, HOPE Warming Center, The Jampot, CIS – El Salvador, Leader Dog for the Blind and Motown Soups.

The Make a Difference Market dates are December 7/8, 14/15, and 21/22. Thank you for helping to make a difference in people’s lives!
