'Together we can Bake an Enormous Loaf of Bread'

Come for celebrating the supper of the Lord.
Together we will bake an enormous loaf of bread.
We make wine that overflows like in Cana long ago.
Surely the women won’t forget the salt, and the men will gladly bring the yeast. 
 (Adapted from a Brazilian hymn by Flavio Irala)

Members of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Albuquerque wrote a total of 230 letters to Sen. Tom Udall, Sen. Martin Heinrich and Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, urging them to protect and expand child nutrition programs. We are thankful to Terese Rand Bridges (pictured above) for organizing the Offering of Letters at St. Michael and All Angels for the past several years.

As of June 21, members of nine congregations in Albuquerque, Gallup and Las Cruces had written almost 1,120 letters as part of the Feed Our Children campaign. At least a half-a-dozen other churches in New Mexico are planning  an Offering of Letters scheduled in coming months.
