Follow Rte 206 for a little over a mile (past St. Anthony of Padua Parish) and turn right onto Columbia Road (693 East).  Columbia Road will take you to the labor camp on the right side of the road, where the Mass will be held.  The Mass will be held outside under a veranda in the workers’ housing.
