Sabido and Mancos church will mark one year of sanctuary

Rosa Sabido speaks to The Journal about her first year in sanctuary at Mancos United Methodist Church on May 15. Sabido’s year in sanctuary hasn’t been easy for her or the church, but both hope something good will come out of it.
Rose Sabido says she feels her year in sanctuary hasn’t been wasted: “Even if it’s just to create a difference in people’s minds on immigration, that’s a good thing.”
Rosa Sabido’s mother, who recently was diagnosed with cancer, speaks during a community gathering on June 29. “There’s nothing that I can do from here,” Sabido said. “It really blocks me from doing something for her.”
Rosa Sabido hugs Travis Custer, one of the local residents helping with her cause, in June. “You will get, on occasion, the nasty email or the nasty post or something like that, but it’s really very minor compared to the support,” said Pastor Craig Paschal.
Rosa Sabido sits in her new bedroom inside of the United Methodist Church in Mancos in June. “When I came, I didn’t have enough time to think,” Sabido said.
