Anti-Racism Training Workshop
Racial Justice and Healing will be held at St. Asaph’s on Saturday, October 19th, from 9:00am – 3:00 pm. This interactive workshop will focus on how we can address current-day racism with reconciliation that promotes healing. Come share your thoughts and learn how others would promote racial reconciliation and healing. Participating in all four training sessions constitutes completing Anti-Racism Training. We consider this “complete training” to be a good foundation and the beginning of a lifetime of learning about racism and racial healing. Come share your thoughts and learn how others would promote racial reconciliation and healing. Go to diopa.org and click on the “Event” tab for more information on registering.

Want Farm Fresh Food delivered right to your Church?
We are thrilled to announce that St. Asaph’s is now a Wednesday afternoon delivery site for Philly Food Works, an online farmers market offering:Vegetables, Fruit, Dairy, Bread, Meat, Pantry Goods, and more with fully customizable subscriptions and a la carte shopping and flexible payment options.
The founders of Philly Foodworks got their start urban farming in West Philly and realized the need for a better way for small farmers to sell their produce. Their online farmers market takes all of the hassle out of a traditional farm share while keeping the core principles around supporting small, local producers.
