The Brockport community welcomed migrant farmworkers to the area during a Sept. 9 bienvenida celebration. The event began with a bilingual Mass at Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church. After the liturgy, participants gathered at Sweden Town Park for cultural dances, a meal featuring Mexican and American dishes, and a soccer game between farm camps.
