Acequia Blessing

Sponsored by AFSC-NM, the entrega or procession of San Ysidro y Maria de la Cabeza took place on May 18th in Albuquerque’s historic South Valley neighborhood.  Devoted to the church and enduring farmers, San Ysidro and his wife Maria are sainted in the Catholic tradition as the guardians of rain and waterways nourishing spring plantings. This year’s blessing ceremony was featured in the Albuquerque Journal on May 19, 2013. http://www.abqjournal.com/main/200825/news/headline-320.html
