I agree with much of what Pastor Raul Granillo of the La Vista Church wrote recently in his column “The Love of Hate”… especially at the present hatred and vitriol in our nation and around the world today, especially against (and from) political leaders. How we long for civility and grace!

As always, we Christians find answers in scripture. I was reading the other day St. Paul’s letter to Timothy: “I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in

I was profoundly touched by Pastor Granillo's column, "The Love of Hate" (link), and I wanted to share this:
After a cruel, devastating blow during this past Christmas, I was overwhelming consumed with many of the emotions that the Pastor described in his column.

Our community is unique in that so many people come from all over northern New Mexico to work here at LANL—from Chama to Belen and beyond. One of the things lacking in our community is a Christian-based school, which parents might opt to utilize should they feel moved to do so. 

Not infrequently, parents—Catholic and not—have queried us as to whether we might one day start a school here at IHM for this purpose.

This letter is to inform parents and our extended community that IHM has initiated a feasibility survey in
