77th Annual Homecoming: Always Welcome. Always Family

The theme for this year's, Alumni Weekend of Always Welcome. Always Family. comes from the belief that no matter how many days you attended SAS or SVA, whether you graduated or not, no matter how long it has been since you last visited, nor whether you have stayed in contact with your former classmates or faculty... that you are considered Alumni and part of the Spanish-American Seminary and Sandia View Academy family! Romans 15:5-7 encourages us to live in harmony with one another, unify in one voice to glorify God, and to welcome one another as Christ our Lord welcomes us for the glory of God. To this end, the Board of the SAS & SVA Alumni Association invites you to attend this year's Alumni Weekend, to be held in Corrales, NM the 2nd weekend of ABQ International Balloon Fiesta, October 10-12, 2019.

We are blessed and privileged to have speakers who are filled with the Holy Spirit, have been called by God to the ministry, and who are passionate about Christ's soon return. 
Pastor Leslie Aragon, Class of 1966, will speak for our church service on Sabbath. 
Pastor Michael Gibson, Class of 2012, will speak for our Friday night vespers service. 
Pastor Eliab Quinones, Class of 2015, will speak for our Sabbath evening vespers service. 
You will not want to miss any of these programs. Make plans today to attend this year's Alumni Weekend, October 10-12, 2019.
