Poverty Banquet at St. Mary’s, Montague

Confirmation students, parents and invited guests from the Bishop MacEachern Pastoral Unit recently participated in their 6th Annual Poverty Banquet.
As people arrived they were divided into groups of rich, middle and low arbitrarily.
Each income level received a corresponding meal – filling and nutritious or sparse and simple – in proportion to the way food is distributed throughout the world.

Nancy Matheson led the group through a dialogue discussing poverty and moved some of the 50 participants through various income levels.  Sister Elizabeth Dunn led in mediation of “Life on 50 cents a day”
