Unity in Community

Together, we answer Spirit’s call in Albuquerque and throughout the planet. Our Vision states that we are “Transforming Our World with the Power of Love in Action.” Thank you for being part of this vision. We invite you to share our Center’s mission, “Loving All Creation Through Spiritual Growth and Service - Always Staying True to Our Highest Self.” We are graced with infinite abundance. Thank you for making Rio Grande Center your spiritual home.

Through your giving, you reach out and share this gift with others. Our campaign theme this year - “Unity in Community” - reminds all of us... We are the Unity. Through this period of finding our new spiritual leader, Unity in Community is an invitation to share the love and power of Spirit.

    Generosity is a Spiritual Practice

We as members are committed to being fed spiritually and committed to actively engage the world to be a difference for good.
