August 22, 2014 – Las Cruces, NM - On this edition of PUENTES, Emily Guerra bridges the community with Holy Cross Retreat Center Director, Fr. Tom Smith, a Franciscan for more than forty years. He says the center is like an “Oasis in the Desert,” situated within 90 acres of pecan fields in Mesilla Park, an ideal place for conferences, planning and business events.

Holy Cross Retreat Center will be celebrating their annual “Franciscan Festival of Fine Arts” on August 30th and 31st. For more information about the Festival visit; and about the Center visit; and information about the Franciscan way of life can also be found at
