Monastery Health Fair

The Monastery Health Fair has proven to be a great outreach tool to the community at large. This Health Fair offers us an opportunity to partner with other organizations in the community, establishing powerful networks of volunteerism that resonate long after the tents come down. Creating the space and hosting other benefactors and community groups is the synergy that connects us all together in serving God in our neighbor.
