Old St. Gertrude’s

Holman, NM (near Mora) ---- This old and now abandoned church (replaced by a newer one nearby) is named for Saint Gertrude whose feast day is celebrated on November 16th. In reading about her on Wikipedia, I learned that she was a German Benedictine nun and was a great scholar. Look her up; it's interesting. Most fascinating to me is that the New Mexican town Santa Gertrudis de lo de Mora was built in her honor --- now just Mora.
