Harvest Home Tradition
Every September, the St. Alphonsus family comes together to celebrate its Harvest Home tradition, which goes back to 1889 when local farmers donated their crops and prepared a hearty meal to raise funds for St. Alphonsus Church and its new school.
That school has been merged with St. Alexis School and renamed Blessed Francis Seelos Academy. Proceeds from Harvest Home are split equally between the church and school.
Although Wexford is not the agricultural area it once was, we still harken back to those early roots when local farmers generously donated fresh, delicious produce for this event. We are especially grateful for the generosity over the years of the following farms: Wexford Farms, Soergel Orchards, Shenot Farm & Market, and Eichner’s Family Farm Market.
