In October each year, St. John's joins with other faith communities to raise awareness and funding for combating world hunger in the CROP walk.
CROP stands for "Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty". Why walking? Hungry people in developing countries typically walk as much as six miles a day to find food, water and fuel. We walk in solidarity with their struggle for existence. If you are interested in being the 2013 CROP walk coordinator, please speak to Ed Gillott
Neighbors from different faiths, cultures and ages walking together to take a stand against hunger in our world and to raise awareness about it. Some 2000 communities nation-wide participate each year.
Walkers ask parishioners and communities to pledge a certain amount of money to them to complete the walk. These funds are in turn donated to National and International agencies and efforts working to alleviate hunger.
