Our new greenhouse is fully operable, under the watchful care of Father Zachary, assisted by others as time permits. We are growing vegetables and flowers there, which will be harvested throughout the Summer and Autumn months. Even in the winter we should be able to grow produce in the greenhouse.

We are especially indebted to the Catholic Foundation of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for their assistance in making the greenhouse project possible.

The current warmer weather means other outdoor projects are being tackled, including irrigating pastures, shearing sheep, keeping the chicken house clean, gathering fallen branches and planting the lilies that decorated our church for the first weeks of Easter. As one Sister of the Love of God in England liked to say: “Keep on going on.” That’s what we try to do!

Our greetings and prayers as we continue the celebration of the Easter Season.
