Blessing of the Fields is May 15

May 09, 2013

The New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum will celebrate an old, historical tradition with the annual Blessing of the Fields on May 15.

The colorful, music-filled procession around the museum’s campus to bless the animals, field and bread will be led by Bishop Oscar Cantú. The procession begins about 10 a.m. Admission to participate in the procession is free.

The Las Cruces Catholic School Praise Band will be part of the procession and the Las Cruces Catholic Schools Ballet Folklorico Colores de Cristo group will perform dances after the procession.
