Mark Your Calendar for the 8th Annual Archdiocesan Middle School Conference! 

Stepping Into The Light - A deeper look at the Beatitudes. This wonderful opportunity will be on Saturday, 23 November at The Shrine of St Therese of the Little Flower of Jesus at 300 Mildred Avenue NW, ABQ 87107  This is the next Parish south of us, just south of Candelaria and west of 2nd street.  The conference will begin at 11 am and conclude after the 4 pm Mass. Pricing and other additional  information on how to register will be coming out soon. If you are interested in attending or have questions about Nativity participation contact our middle school coordinator, Fred Baca, at [email protected] .


2nd year confirmation candidates need to bring in their Sponsor information to Francesca ASAP.  This information will be used for invitations to future classes as well as the ceremony itself.  Please contact Francesca at 340-0421.


St Therese Catholic School is the Jewel of the North Valley!  They are currently breaking ground on a new cafeteria and gym facility!  Registration is open for kids from pre-K through 8th grade for the 2019-2020 school year.  The cost of pre-K at St Therese is half what many day care centers are charging, and your children receive education instead of daycare! Now is your chance to provide your children or grandchildren with a great education in a loving, Christian atmosphere.  Scholarships are available. Call 344- 4479 for a tour or to register.


Calling all students! Are you looking for money to help pay for school? This is the perfect opportunity for you.
