norbertine solar blessing 2 (1)The Norbertine Community in Albuquerque celebrated their new solar field, named Pope Francis Solar Field, with a special prayer and blessing in July 2015. The community has previously done energy efficiency work and with the new buildings that are a few years old they incorporated energy efficiency, water saving and xeriscaping. Their work assists their community to have a smaller carbon footprint and is a model for the many educational programs they have and for all who come to utilize their wonderful library and to pray or make retreat days.
