Every one of us in Durham region enjoys local fruit and vegetables every summer!  But that would not be the case if we didn’t have many migrant workers who come to Canada to help out on our farms.  

The church season of Lent is a time of year when we focus especially on the needs of others.  So our Lenten project again this year is to support the Migrant Worker ministry of the Anglican Church in our Durham area through our diocesan FaithWorks program.  The Reverend Augusto Nunez, the incumbent of St. Saviour’s, Orono, works hard to support the workers who come mostly from Mexico and Jamaica to work on our farms.  

Our St. John’s goal this year is to raise $2000 towards this ministry.  Look for the special table and poster in the church.  

You can donate cash or a cheque at church

or through e-transfer the “donate now” button on the church website 

or by e-transfer to the office at St. Johns Bowmanville

Please make all donations to “St. John’s” and mark donations “FaithWorks” or “migrant worker ministry”.  

With your help we can reach our goal – and enjoy our local fruits and vegetables – knowing that we are helping those who work on our farms!
