Annual MEWG Advent Sale: A Reminder and Opportunity

Nov 12, 2021

The Annual Mid-East Working Group Advent sale of olivewood crafts and olive oil is being held this year on Sundays from November 28 -December 19. The olive oil is high-quality Fair Trade oil from Canaan and Al’Ard, where Palestinian farmers carefully nurture an exceptional quality of olives for their cooperatives’ signature oils.

The sale will be held in Baxter Hall, and you can pay with cash or by check made out to St. Mark’s Church with “olive oil” in the subject line. Questions? Contact Maureen Shea.

This year, your purchase of these fine products will support the Episcopal Princes Basma Centre in Jerusalem, a unique treatment and rehabilitation center serving Palestinian children with disabilities, regardless of ethnicity or religion. The Centre’s innovative program using virtual therapy provides rehabilitation services for children in Gaza, where access to services is challenging due to the constant shortage of medicine, staff, and supplies and the restrictions that prevent patients from traveling to Jerusalem.
