October 18, 2015, at 9:30 a.m., St. Mark’s Welcomes Special Guest Speaker

The Episcopal Farmworker Ministry (EFwM), a joint ministry between the Diocese of East Carolina and North Carolina, has been serving farmworkers in Johnston, Harnett and Sampson Counties in eastern North Carolina for nearly three decades. EFwM ministers to 3,500 farmworkers each growing season by providing Spanish-language sacramental ministries and Eucharist celebrations. Some of the programmatic ministries include immigration assistance; transportation services; food, clothing and toiletry kit collection and distribution; labor camp visits; counseling; and English as a Second Language (ESL classes), as well as a visitors program for church, community and school groups. No one is denied services based on ability to pay. Come, learn more about this important ministry, and welcome our guest speaker from EfwM, Dr. Juan Carbana, Interim Director.  Join us in our Community Life Center between the 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. services.
