Normally our Across the Aisles photo feature takes a weekly look at parishioners and clergy in their parish church. But there is praise and fellowship also in the rows of a local farm producing God’s bountiful of harvest to feed his people.
Red Hill Farm, a small, six-acre community cooperative run by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia in Aston, Delaware County, recently received a Catholic Foundation of Greater Philadelphia grant to feed the 120-member families, and other area residents. But the wholesome labor performed under blue and sunny skies Aug. 6 also fed the spirits of those who worked the land and benefited from its produce. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
