"...The statistics are very grim regarding the condition of our children. New Mexico holds the United States’ highest rate of children living in poverty and the second highest percentage of children going to bed hungry every night . Our children need intervention and support now...Please, in this year of mercy, join me in praying for our little ones and together with our community answering this call before us." Most Rev. John C. Wester, Archbishop of Santa Fe
