In Albuquerque


Here is a snapshot of Fran and me standing in front of San Felipe de Neri Church, the oldest Catholic parish church in Albuquerque (and just a short walk from the hotel where the Emerging Church Conference was held). As the church’s website puts it, “For nearly 300 years, San Felipe de Neri Parish has provided a spiritual heart for Albuquerque, New Mexico. That heart is still beating strongly, offering liturgical, pastoral, and educational services to parishioners and visitors. The present church building, constructed in 1793, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.” The picture was taken by a very nice young man named Milton, who was rewarded with a Julian of Norwich Prayer Card for his efforts.
