Migrant Ministry seeks to be a welcoming presence to our seasonal brothers and sisters who faithfully and diligently work at local migrant farms. This ministry strives to build relationships with these workers and help them feel a part of our community. Migrant Ministry also ensures the newly arrived have sufficient food and other needs to become safely established here.
Camp visits are typically on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday, with a few exceptions.
We build relationships, lend a listening ear, and strive to help in whatever ways possible.
Food boxes and hygiene packs along with clothing are available.
We work with a missionary priest, who celebrates Mass at the camps twice a week.
With the leadership of Micanna Pelkey, our Migrant Ministry efforts doubled this summer. Through 20 visits, we ministered to a total of 11 camps, 58 households, and 311 migrant workers with weekly Masses, holy water packets and rosaries. We also distributed over 100 food boxes & 311 hygiene packs! Thank you Micanna, Laurie, Mark, Clayton, Dave, Mike, Ben, Barb, Rachael, Rusty, and Alex for your time volunteering!
We are in need of volunteers to accompany our staff to the camps throughout the week.
If you feel God’s call to this ministry or have any questions, please contact Micanna.
