The Gates of Jerusalem


Our Lenten journey is bringing us to the gates of Jerusalem. We are preparing to pass through them with Jesus into the sanctity of Holy Week.


As we prepare for Holy Week, please find a place for FaithWorks in your life and parish; in your Paschal observances and celebrations. Please support our efforts to meet the needs of the most vulnerable among us.


In your parishes, I ask that the FaithWorks posters are visible and the FaithWorks outreach envelopes are available for everyone to take, “open and be inspired.” Even if your parish’s FaithWorks campaign does not take place until later in the year, we never know when the Holy Spirit will move someone into action.


As part of your Easter observance, please donate to ease the pain and suffering of another. Helping others is our way of proclaiming "Alleluia! Christ is risen!”

The Lord continues to work through us!


The following items are from recent newsletters of

our ministry partner the

Migrant Workers Ministry in Durham.

It is an example of the outreach that your donation to FaithWorks supports.

Greetings to you all,

The men have been here since January but are now arriving in larger groups. As always from the MWM, our prayer is for them and our farm owner friends to have a good and safe season. We appreciate all that they do for our communities. 

In 2023 we will continue our ministry to the men and our good friendship with the farm owners. As you know, we have had a relationship with these men for years now, and it was very special to welcome them these past weeks.

Here are a few pictures of my visit with the men, where I prayed for them and their families while they are working in Canada.


May our Lord give them a good and safe working season.  

Please continue to keep well and safe.

Blessings, Rev Augusto Nunez
