I'm just starting out on the church's FB page now as your new pastor. Please note that worship services have been canceled for the next three weeks. Stay tuned for updates. Random sacks--lunches packed for our neighbors in the skate park-- will continue to go out as the needs of the homeless continue. May you be at peace and embody Chris't love for others. Laura
Peace to you all! This is my first post as your new pastor and I want to reassure you that you are in my prayers as we deal with the new norms/prevention practices for the Covid-19 virus.
I have been and will continue to be sending resources via email for your spiritual lives. AmenHere is a prayer from St. Benedict that is a wonderful practice for daily prayer. Wouldn't it be lovely if we all prayed this prayer everyday and connected ourselves that way? Give it a try:
Almighty God,
give us wisdom to perceive you,
intellect to understand you,
diligence to seek you,
patience to wait for you,
eyes to behold you,
a heart to meditate upon you
and life to proclaim you,
through the power of the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Amen.
Last night at our annual Matthew 25 Giving Society Awards Reception, we presented the recipients of this year’s Hands of the Holy Spirit Award, honoring faithful partners who went beyond what was expected without seeking acknowledgement. This year was the first time this recognition went to a Catholic Charities staff member as Celia Yapita was recognized as one of the award's recipients! She has exhibited extraordinary passion in honoring human dignity by helping our brothers and sisters who are fleeing their countries and seeking asylum in the United States.

Celia accepted the challenge to create a framework and to lead an effort that has caught the attention of many religious and civic organizations of all faiths as well as as the City, County, and State. By engaging the help of many individuals, organizations, volunteers, and staff members, Celia created a process that gives these weary travelers a comfortable place to rest their head, a shower for themselves and their children, clean clothes and a method to get to their final destination of family or sponsors. She accepted this challenge over a holiday weekend in February, and has done this amazing work on top of her “regular job” as Chief Program Officer, supporting all of our six Centers of Excellence on a daily basis.

This award reflects the belief held in the eyes of the Church that Charity is accomplished when we allow the Holy Spirit to use our hands to provide relief, to console, to teach, to assist, to counsel and to welcome.

Thank you Celia for all of your hard work in honoring human dignity and putting faith in action to improve the lives of those in need. And thank you to the amazing partners in our community who made and continue to make this interfaith humanitarian effort possible, including Archdiocese of Santa Fe Official and its many parishes and ministries, City of Albuquerque - Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs, Albuquerque Interfaith, Indivisible Nob Hill, Congregation Albert, St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church, LFS Refugee - Albuquerque, Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, Albuquerque Mennonite Church, Bosque Center for Spiritual Living, Central United Methodist Church, El Centro de Igualdad, First Unitarian Church of Albuquerque, New Life Presbyterian, Albuquerque, NM, NM Dream Team, New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice, New Mexico Immigrant Law Center, Norbertine Community of Santa María de la Vid Abbey, One Spiritual Center, SW Franciscans, Encuentro NM, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Unity Spiritual Center Albuquerque, UNM Health Sciences Center, and many many more!

(Celia was one of many awardees recognized at our event. Check back throughout the next week to learn about this year's other worthy honorees)
WATCH: Earlier today we updated the community on asylum seekers traveling legally through Albuquerque.

Our residents are stepping up to help these folks on their journeys to other American cities, showing what #OneAlbuquerque is all about. Thank you to the private charities, organizations and individuals who are funding and supporting these efforts. Get involved in the effort by emailing either [email protected] or you can donate at www.ccasfnm.org

The people the cat lady

We are staying at a cheaper hotel getting our APT ready here in Florida. The car parked next to has a cardboard sign that reads. “Two cats need a home help.” John started talking with her and she said she was probably going to be moving because it was time. She said she didn’t really want to move. John asked which where she was going next … back to living on my car. He wished her well. Sigh Bobbie Giltz McGarey

Test Exams for Grace When I was in college I would often buy used books. Back in the 60’s and 70’s college books were not obscenely priced as they are today.

“Faith, a journey for all” by Jimmy Carter Both at my inauguration and when I received the Nobel Peace Prize, I quoted my favorite teacher, Miss Julia Coleman, who summarized her advice on how to accommodate the uncertainties in our future: “We must welcome changing times, but cling to principles that never change.” I would say that “cling to” meant “have faith in.” I have thought often about Miss Julia’s advice over the years, and especially during some of the most trying times of my life, when I had to decide which enduring principles should be applied to a particular event or situation.
