Robbie and Santiago at Santo Niño de Atocha, Buena Vista
Cornerstones’ summer work projects have begun! Don Sena, Cornerstones Project Manager, along with Cornerstones interns Robbie Kelly and Santiago Vigil, completed the scheduled work on the Santo Niño de Atocha Church, Buena Vista, NM. Preservation maintenance work accomplished consisted of opening up an exterior crack to evaluate the structure, applying mud plaster to the crack and wall repairs to interior surfaces. Cornerstones Director, Jake Barrow met with Mayordoma Veronica Serna to discuss windows and long-term church restoration goals. Thank you, Don, Robbie, Santiago, Jake and Veronica!
Don, Robbie and Santiago head to San Rafael in La Cueva (Mora valley) next for a major exterior re-plastering workshop. Mayordoma Gwen Moore is gathering together all materials needed for the job. Staff from the Catholic Foundation will join the effort on June 21. Volunteer opportunities are available here and at the Forked Lightening Ranch Stable Workshop in Pecos described below.
