Migrant Farm Worker’s Ministry

The Richmond Diocese has a long history, dating back to the 1970s, of providing support for single men and families who visit the United States seeking employment through the U.S.C.I.S. Seasonal Agricultural Worker program. We provide training for parishes to form and prepare volunteers for migrant farm worker camp visits. The goal is to provide pastoral support, community support, as well as material support wherever it is needed.

This handbook captures the effort for the 2016 Migrant Ministry Pilot programs:

There are many organizations willing to guide, support, and advocate for those who immigrate to our country sometime fleeing from a life of destitution or persecution. Below are some of the best resources available to understanding the question of immigration.

Catholic Legal Immigration Network Inc.

Mission: Embracing the Gospel value of welcoming the stranger, CLINIC promotes the dignity and protects the rights of immigrants in partnership with a dedicated network of Catholic and community legal immigration programs.

Justice for Immigrants

In 2004, the Catholic bishops of the United States committed to immigration reform as a priority of the U.S. Catholic Church, and to creating a culture of encounter in which all migrants are treated with respect and dignity. A diverse group of Catholic organizations with national networks joined the USCCB’s Justice for Immigrants Campaign (JFI) to unite and mobilize Catholic institutions, individuals, and persons of goodwill in support of immigration reform.
