The audience was very engaged and the Q&A session had to be interrupted while questions were still pending to conclude on time. Many of the participants told us that they wanted to learn more about the EOC and some indicated the interest to turn their own business into an Economy of Communion business and their intent to be the first ones in the Twin Cities.

We are excited about the possibility to continue develop our partnership with those institutions and to support the nascent EOC community in MN.
