Spring Break in Albuquerque
On a recent Tuesday evening in March, Anne Avellone and Graham Golden of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and I were asked to spend some time with four visitors from New Mexico Highlands University (Las Vegas) to talk about Catholic Relief Services, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and Bread for the World.
The visitors, who were here as part of a spring break program sponsored by Catholic Charities, had four busy days in Albuquerque. They spent some time and volunteered with several local organizations and agencies, including Good Shepherd Center and Immaculate Conception (Sunday lunch for the homeless community), the two local Catholic Worker houses (Trinity House and Casa de las Comunidades), and Hibernian House (for low-income seniors).
