Support migrant workers in B.C.

Mass at St. Ann's, Abbotsford on June 19.

Migrant workers are brought into Canada to work in far more industries that is normally supposed. Besides agricultural labourers, there are many doing low paid unskilled jobs in restaurants, nursing homes, and in the homes of private individuals. Many are lonely and find themselves subjected to harsh working conditions, says the Coalition for Migrant Worker Justice. 
The Vancouver Office of Service and Justice is working with the Scalabrinian Fathers at Our Lady of Sorrows parish to find ways to welcome and support migrant workers and, on June 19 at 5 p.m., Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, will offer a Mass to welcome them and support their needs at St. Ann's Parish in Abbotsford, 33333 Mayfair Avenue.
