MORA MISSION CHURCH TOUR
This tour features some of New Mexico’s most beautiful and beautifully situated historic churches. Included are brief stops for exterior visits of six churches, plus interior visits of Santa Teresita in Turquillo and Our Lady of Mount Carmel in El Carmen. The tour is guided by Frank Graziano, author of Historic Churches of New Mexico Today, in collaboration with mayordomas (church caretakers) Rebecca Montoya and Carol Romero. At Santa Teresita we have a New Mexican lunch—included in the tour—and Rebecca gives a talk/tour regarding her interior restoration of the church. At Our Lady of Mount Carmel Carol presents the history of the church, and together with Rebecca and Frank answers questions regarding Mora County mission churches. The tour is an exceptional opportunity to see churches that are relatively unknown outside of Mora and that are rarely seen by nonparishioners. Shuttle bus transportation is included; we gather and board in Las Vegas. The tour is limited to twelve participants.
The mission churches included in the tour, all of St. Gertrude parish, are SAN ACACIO, Golondrinas; SAN JOSÉ, Cañoncito; SAN RAFAEL, La Cueva; SANTA RITA, Lucero; SANTA TERESITA DEL NIÑO JESÚS, Turquillo; SANTO NIÑO DE ATOCHA, Monte Aplanado; SAN JOSÉ, Ledoux; and OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL, El Carmen.
