HAMMONTON, NJ – AUGUST 19: Dianne Castaneda (L), nine-years-old, and her sister Jazzalyn (C), eleven-years-old, carry a portrait of “Our Lady of Guadalupe” during a procession leading to a Catholic mass, in a farm building, August 19, 2002, in Hammonton, New Jersey. Nearly 10,000 Mexican farm workers leave their homes to labor in the fields of South Jersey annually to harvest fresh vegetables. Farm workers labor from sunrise until dusk, harvesting, cultivating and packaging produce for fresh market sale with little time for anything else. The Diocese of Camden celebrates Mass in the fields to serve as “a spiritual outreach” to the farm workers and their children. (Photo by William Thomas Cain/Getty Images)
