Our Lady of Guadalupe’s annual Ethical Trade Sale is going online this year!

Through our virtual sale, you’ll find a large variety of unique, quality gifts AND 20% of sales come back to OLG! Win, win, win! Simply shop through our custom parish page: serrv.org?a=olgfairtrade. Bonus, you can get a $10 gift card on 11/21-22 (code: SEGC20). This year, we are also selling Pura Vida coffee. Pura Vida has been VERY generous every year, donating 100% of sales (sometimes even more!). Their business is struggling with COVID and now we can return the generosity. To order their delicious ground or whole bean coffee, contact Erin at erinpedras@centurylink.net by November 30. We’ll have coffee ready to pick up at OLG on December 12 from 11am-3pm.

J Mase Author Reading: Black Trans Prayer Book @ Online (see listing)
Dec 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Don’t miss an incredible evening with J Mase III and co-editors of the Black Trans Prayer Book. Join the contributors of the Black Trans Prayer Book for an evening of spirited connections.

We will add the streaming link here and on our Facebook event page one week before the event

The Black Trans Prayer Book: is a beyond-faith-and-interfaith, multi-dimensional, artistic and theological work that collects the stories, poems, prayers, meditation, spells, and incantations of Black Trans & Non-Binary people. Often pushed out of Faith spaces and yet still deeply connected to a historical legacy of spiritual essentiality, Black Trans People face unprecedented amounts of spiritual, physical, and psychological violence. The Black Trans Prayer Book is a tool of healing, and affirmation centered on uplifting Black Trans & Non-Binary people and celebrating our place within faith.

What does it mean to have a faith practice that simultaneously challenges white supremacy and transphobia? Where is there a theological framework that centers the most marginalized and creates pathways towards an active spirituality moving alongside social justice? How might a spiritual practice not in tune with these questions cause harm? The #BlackTransPrayerBook, is holding these very questions.

Grab the book on the website!
