VIRTUS TRAINING: All ministers within the parish, PLEAS coordinate with your ministry head to determine if you need to update your VIRTUS.  It is important that everyone is up to date with their Abuse awareness class.  If you are not sure where you stand with your training, please contact Deacon Michael. If you are in need of an update, please complete the Virtus training at https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/ and send the completion certificate to Deacon Michael at 340-0422 or [email protected] . If you don’t have a computer or can’t complete the training online, please contact Deacon Michael and he will set up a class.

ARE YOU MARRIED IN THE CHURCH?  If you have been married by a judge, at a chapel in Las Vegas or by any other means outside the Church, we invite you to contact us.  We will do everything we can to help you get your marriage blessed by the Church in a special ceremony known as a convalidation.  It is a lot less work than you might expect. Contact Deacon Michael at [email protected] or 505-340-0422 for more information.

CONFESSIONS: Individual confessions are in the church at 3 pm on Saturdays. Simply come in the front door and join the line. All are welcome.

BAPTISMS: If you have a child who needs to be baptized, contact Nicole at 340-0421 and she will arrange the time and date. BAPTISM CLASS in English is the second Sunday of the month in the Pastoral Center and the third Sunday of the month in Spanish. Please come to the Pastoral Center at 9 am on those days if you need a baptism class.
