From: NM Pilgrimage for Unity

We are moving toward that most conflicting of seasons — Thanksgiving with a blend of family emotions, many strong signals of consumerism, and the awkwardness of Indigenous Peoples, Pilgrims, and subsequent waves of immigrants and invaders.  At New Mexico Pilgrimage for Unity, we think this is a good time to walk and prayer and are facilitating a Pilgrimage-in-Place, meaning individuals or small groups plan a pilgrimage in any style that is reflective of walking prayerfully, carrying an intention of deep openness to God, grateful for the abundance of life and focusing on that which hold us together in Christ. Since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 there has not be an annual three day Pilgrimage (50 miles, Ghost Ranch to Chimayo), but the steering team offered several opportunities for Pilgrimage in Place.  We share prayer intentions and expectations of pilgrimage at a Zoom service of worship to begin the pilgrimage period; then over a set period of time, pilgrims  walk and pray. The experience is closed  with another zoom service, featuring a guest speaker, more sharing and praying.  Registration is ready here,

Path to Citizenship

Find information below regarding a budget resolution passed by congress that includes a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrants across the country.  

This recent development means that we are another step closer to delivering a path to citizenship. The We Are Home Campaign and its partners are building on the momentum to get this done via reconciliation in the weeks to come.

PLEASE USE THE SOCIAL TOOLKIT BELOW TO TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW.
CONTENT IN ENGLISH AND SPANISH is available in the toolkit.

On Oct. 5th the NMCC Board authorized a new job description for the next NMCC Executive, established a Search Committee and timeline, as well as crafted the Budget for 2017! The future is approaching.
