Many thanks to Brian Lowney at the Rhode Island Catholic for his feature, “Midwest Drought to Impact Altar Bread Prices.” Click here to read the article.
He interviewed our Sister Rita Clair, manager of the altar bread department, to get her thoughts on how the area’s drought could affect wheat prices with regards to our altar bread production.
We are grateful that Mr. Lowney’s story was shared with the Catholic News Agency, allowing other secular and mainstream media the opportunity to share this story with their readers across the country and around the world.
As always, we keep everyone in prayer. We have been producing altar breads for over a century. Times change. Hard times come and go. Faith is everlasting, as is our confidence in the Lord’s guidance. We’ll continue making the bread that becomes the Body of Christ. And do it with prayer and a smile!
In related news, the area surrounding our community in Clyde, Missouri, received some blessed rain over the weekend. Thanks be to God! We continue to keep our neighbors and friends in our prayers, that more rain will come and renew our lands.
