Speakers dressed up as farmers from Pakistan, Tanzania, Guatemala and the U.S. and spoke of their improved methods of farming to help to provide more nourishing food and a greater yield.

A farmer from Pakistan said, “With the help of a seed bank and composting techniques we have increased our yield and can be more resilient to weather-related difficulties and climate change.”

God calls us to thanksgiving for all God’s gifts and also to repentance and a new commitment to address the needs of hungry people
in our land.

Prayer: Forgive us, Lord, when our choices are selfish ones, and when we do not choose to raise our voice in favor of the poor and those who suffer in other ways.

The prayer service culminated the activities of the St. Gregory’s United Nations Club. During the year the children debated topics around world hunger, farmers’ land rights, and care for the environment. The children learned how the UN works toward creating a world without war, hunger and poverty.
