Are You A Registered Parishioner?
We welcome you and your family to register as an active member of Holy Ghost Parish. To do this, you may come by the parish office during office hours and complete a registration form, you may pick up a registration form in the gathering space of the church or you may click on this link for a registration form. Holy Ghost Registration Form Please print out the form, complete it and return it to the parish office. If you have any children over the age of 18 in your household, it is recommended that they register independently to begin their adult records.
It's an unfortunate thing sometimes when people come into the office and we have no record of them being members of our parish. Sometimes, they have been attending Mass and think that alone would qualify as being registered. Sometimes, they are kind enough to put in occasional donations during Mass. Unfortunately, this alone does not register them in the parish. Only completion of the registration form gets you recorded as a member of Holy Ghost Parish. To maintain your membership on our parish roster, it is important to be "active" via your donation records and/or by your ministry service.
We welcome all practicing Catholics in our area to join our Holy Ghost family.
If you have any questions, please call us at 505/265-5957. Thank you.

Saint of The Day
12/31/69 10:00 pm
St. Vincent was Deacon of Saragossa, and a martyr under Diocletian in 304. This most renowned martyr of Spain is represented in the dalmatic of a deacon, and has as emblems a cross, a raven, a grate, or a fire-pile. He is honored as patron in Valencia, Saragossa and Portugal.He was born at Saragossa to Eutricius, his father, and Enola, his mother, who was a native of Osca. Under the direction of Valerius, Bishop of Sargossa, Vincent made great progress in his studies. He was ordained a deacon and commissioned to do the preaching in the diocese since the bishop at the time had a speech impedement. By order of Governor Dacian, Vincent and his bishop were dragged in chains to Valencia and kept in prison there for a long time. Then Valerius was banished, but Vincent was subjected to many cruel torments including the rack, the gridiron, and scourgings. After suffering these, he was again imprisoned in a cell strewn with potsherds. He was then placed in a soft and luxurious bed, to shake his constancy, but there he expired.His body was thrown to be devoured by vultures, but it was defended by a raven. Dacian then had the body cast into the sea, but it came to shore and was buried by a pious widow. After peace was restored to the Church, a chapel was built over Vincent's remains outside the walls of Valencia.Read More
