First published in 1888, The Josephite Harvest began as an annual issue, called The Colored Harvest. The first issue coincided with the opening of St. Joseph Seminary in Baltimore, Maryland, and it urged support for this new American missionary institution.
The editorial content in The Harvest quietly relates the stories and efforts of Josephite priests and brothers as they strive to accomplish their missions of dedication to the communities of African Americans. Some of the stories are about the priests and brothers, themselves, and their never-ending labors of love in their parishes and communities. Others recount success stories that have been realized by the Society’s hard work and devotion, like the very successful, all-black, 800-student St. Augustine High School in New Orleans, Louisiana.
