Hello Albuquerque,

This week, my interfaith family celebrated Holy Week and Passover in a very different way than we are used to. Instead of having the family together on these occasions, we got together over video chats and it was very clear that coronavirus was on the forefront of all of our minds.

At a time when we’d traditionally bring together friends and family, and invite others to join in celebration, we are so grateful for all in our community who are finding new ways to reach out and help those most in need this season.

Today, like many New Mexicans, we did not partake on a traditional pilgrimage to Tomé or Chimayó, but we are all making a different kind of sacrifice for each other.

We want to thank our faith leaders for their patience and flexibility in this time and finding ways to celebrate our religious holidays in ways that keep everyone safe.

It’s important that everyone who can, continues to stay home even during Easter weekend. This is about saving lives and helping our first responders and healthcare providers take care of our community and take care of themselves.

We will get through this as One Albuquerque,

-Mayor Tim Keller
