Day 6 - Saturday Afternoon Excursion

January 19, 2019
By Patricia Weidman, CSA
La Lomita Chapel

We four (Jeanne, and Sisters Clare, Julie, and Patricia) were curious to observe the Respite Center program on a Saturday. The Center was crowded and busy. A Catholic pastor, adults, and students volunteer one weekend per quarter. A BBQ lunch is provided on Saturdays by a local restaurant. Journalists from Germany interviewed Sister Noma. We four left in the afternoon to visit La Lomita, a historic landmark of a mission church that will be disrupted by the construction of the wall. We glimpsed the Rio Grande while we drove to the National Butterfly Center. Strolling mariachis played for us at the restaurant.
