March 12 Four Churches In One Day

Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assissi

Today is a Holy Day. Not really, but it seems like it should be because I went to FOUR churches today! I don’t even go to four churches in one year! Santa Fe, New Mexico has some spectacular churches so if you are into paying an admission fee to go inside of beautiful and historical, sacred spaces, this town is for you. I once went to church in a bikini  (true story) but that’s a story for another day.

The bell in San Miguel – you can actually ring it like the Hunchback of Notre Dame! People will look at you funny while you are all hunched over, but so what? Do you, booboo.
