Support Magdalene and Thistle Farms

March 03, 2015

March 15 Meeting
Inspired by Thistle Farms and Magdalene, a small group including Sue Beyer, Amity Carrubba, Katie Eccles and Rose Cicero, is working to begin a similar ministry in the Diocese of Chicago.  

All are invited to join in this nascent ministry by attending a discussion at St. Martin's, Des Plaines on Sunday, March 15 at 3 pm. We will share reflections of our visit to Nashville and discuss further steps for making a "Magdalene" Ministry a reality in the Diocese of Chicago. For more information, contact Rose Cicero.

April 18 "Shared Trade" Marketplace
On Saturday, April 18, from 11 am - 2 pm, St. James Commons will host a Thistle Farms Marketplace to provide an opportunity for education and commerce that supports Thistle Farms and its Shared Trade social enterprise

Participants will learn about the issues of trafficking, addiction and prostitution and the solutions that have worked for women in the Thistle Farms family. Local activists and organizations involved in similar work are encouraged to join the discussion. For more information contact Karin Gutierrez.
