Our love and condolences for Aquinas Newman Center at the University of New Mexico and the Archdiocese of Santa Fe

Please join me in praying for our brothers and sisters in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe,

On Sunday, June 23 the Colorado State Patrol announced that two people are dead and several injured following a crash involving a charter bus that was transporting 10 children and five adults on Interstate 25 near Pueblo Sunday afternoon. The group from the Aquinas Newman Center at the University of New Mexico were traveling home from Steubenville of the Rockies.

I am confident in the assurances I give our suffering brothers and sisters at the Aquinas Newman Center at the University of New Mexico that they have the love, prayerful solidarity, and condolences of the people, priests, deacons, and religious of the Diocese of Pueblo.

I ask that an intercession for those who died, and the survivors, friends and family be part of our Sunday Masses this coming weekend (June 29-30).

Sample intercession:

For God’s mercy and the gift of eternal life for those who have died recently and suddenly and for those grieving at Aquinas Newman Center at the University of New Mexico and the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, we pray to the Lord.
