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
Following a screening of the new documentary about the life and music of Phil Ochs, Maggie Fogarty of the AFSC will lead a discussion with Jim Kates. Jim was a volunteer in the Mississippi Freedom Summer Project in 1964 and later was active in the movement against the US war in Vietnam. He is a poet, literary translator, and publisher of the re-issued "Letters from Mississippi." Check the Red River website to confirm time and ticket prices.
