Since the 1598 arrival of Juan de Oñate, the Franciscans have established a series of missions among the pueblos. In his talk, Antonio Trujillo will explore Franciscan spirituality and how it parallels the traditions of the Pueblo peoples. Trujillo, who served as the priest at Acoma and Laguna Pueblos for four years, will share his intimate experience with Puebloan Feast Days and his reflections about Franciscan spirituality and its impact in modern times.
Trujillo and his wife Lucinda own and operate Guadalupe Vineyards in San Fidel, New Mexico. Antonio was a Franciscan for seventeen years and currently serves as the administrator of St. Joseph School in San Fidel.
