Thank you for always eating my cheese-it’s with me at snack time. You’re the reason I’m also an Eagles fan. I’m so grateful for your warmth and compassion.

Archbishop Wester: “Welcome All as Body of Christ”
Archbishop John C. Wester and the people of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe gathered for the 28th Annual Native American Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi on Sunday, August 20.
S Margaret Marie Padilla, CSSF and S Angela Marie Ybarra, CSSF represented the Felician Sisters at this beautiful Eucharistic celebration.
Archbishop Wester was both presider and homilist. He reminded those in attendance of their responsibility as Catholics today to welcome all as Body of Christ and to be bearers of faith, inclusivity, and peace, especially at this time in our country and world.
Archbishop Wester acknowledged and asked the governors to extend gratitude for the work and presence of the Native American population in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. Six Pueblo Governors and Lieutenant Governors from the various nearby Isleta Pueblo, Jemez Pueblo, Laguna Pueblo, Nambe Pueblo, Pojoaque Pueblo, Zia Pueblo, Taos Pueblo, and families were present. Sister Angela explained that their role is considered both political and sacred for the people.
Taos Pueblo Governor Gilbert Suazo sang and drummed a special meditative blessing in his native language after communion as a song of praise.
Sister Angela said, “We enjoyed joining in this sacred connection in this Eucharistic celebration with our Native American Catholic presence in Santa Fe Archdiocese, New Mexico.”
