Benediction

Abiquiu, NM
This morada, now a private chapel, high on the hill above Abiquiu and overlooking the main highway, is one of the earliest moradas in New Mexico, built as a religious meeting place by members of The Penitente Brotherhood, a group of Catholic laymen. This society of men kept the Catholic faith alive for many years in northern New Mexico, and is still an active religious society in these communities.
