Parishes in the Diocese of Raleigh reach out to migrant farmworkers who work in our fields to help produce our food. Each year, the Office of Evangelization and Discipleship organizes the “Encuentro Católico de Campesinos” (Gathering of Catholic Migrant Workers). Services such as haircuts, medical check-ups, Mass with the Bishop, live music, games, and soccer tournament, are offered. An annual collection is also made of personal hygiene products. The Diocese collects the items donated by parishioners and are given to the migrant workers during the event.
