Bread Rising in New Mexico: Norbertine Community a Steadfast Supporter of Anti-Hunger Efforts

Meeting with an aide to Rep. Ben Ray Lujan in Washington
The Norbertine Community of Santa Maria de la Vid has been a strong partner with Bread New Mexico for as long as I remember. The Norbertine fathers and brothers strongly supported Bread for the World's Offerings of Letters, both by writing letters within their own community and providing support and encouragement for volunteers at Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Catholic Community.

Norbertine seminarian Graham Golden participated in visits to legislative offices both here in Albuquerque and in Washington.  Therefore, we thought it was fitting for a Norbertine priest to hold the Call to Prayer at our Bread Rising in New Mexico event on October 25.  Here is the invocation from Rev. Gene Gries, a strong anti-hunger advocate in his own right.

Ellen Buelow, a member of the local Bread for the World leadership team and a parishioner at Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary community, spoke about what actions are available to us at present to address global hunger, specifically initiatives related to food-aid reform.
