North Carolina Farmworkers will benefit from Harvest for Hospitality

Harvest for Hospitality

Throughout the season of Lent and continuing during Easter, St. Paul’s will participate in Harvest for Hospitality, a campaign to benefit the Episcopal Farmworker Ministry, which serves 47 migrant labor camps in Sampson, Harnett and Johnston counties.

Through education, the protection of their human rights and the care of their bodies and souls, the ministry works to change the system that keeps farmworkers in poverty and subhuman conditions. Specific services include providing Spanish-language sacramental ministries and Eucharist celebrations, immigration assistance, transportation services, food, clothing and toiletries, counseling and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.

St. Paul’s families are encouraged to pick up a mite box, available March 8 at the back of the nave and outside the chapel, and to contribute at least $1 each day for 50 days. Contributions to Harvest for Hospitality may also be made by check, payable to St. Paul’s with “Harvest for Hospitality” in the memo line. The goal is for each parish household to contribute at least $50 to the campaign.
