The central mission of Harvest magazine is to make Jesus known by bringing the Gospel message to the people of God and serving as an instrument of teaching, communication and community building, as well as allowing and encouraging the responsible discussion of issues within the diocese.

Harvest includes stories of faith from throughout the Diocese of Portland, as well as regular columns such as "The Last Word" and "In the Know with Father Joe," which answers your questions about Catholicism.

If there is a story you would like to share, someone in your parish who has inspired you, a program you know about that is helping others, or an event you would like included in our Harvest Happenings events calendar, e-mail Lois Czerniak, editor, at [email protected].
