Please be advised that there is a phone texting/email scam going around affecting priests. The texts/emails that are being sent are using priests to solicit for money and Google Play Gift Cards. If you receive one of these scams, please disregard it. The Archdiocese of Santa Fe is aware of this scam and urges everyone to be careful and not to respond. If you have questions about the validity, call the parish office or Archdiocese of Santa Fe first before you act on any urgent text or email from Fr. Hyginus.

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 Parish Registration 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
11/14/19 3:00 am
John Licci is one of the longest living holy menÂ of the Church. His 111 years on this earth in a small town near Palermo, Sicily, were filled with many miracles. His mother died during childbirth, and his father was a poor peasant who had to work the fields, and so was forced to leaveÂ John alone asÂ an infant. Â One day, a neighbor took the crying baby to her home to feed him. She laid the infant on the bed next to her paralyzed husband,Â and heÂ was instantly cured. Â After receiving the suggestion of Blessed Peter Geremia to enter religious life, John joined the Dominicans in 1415. He wore the habit for 96 years which is the longest known periodÂ forÂ any religious. Â He was ordained a priest and founded the convent of Saint Zita in his hometown, Caccamo. The entire construction of the convent is a story of miracles, from the location of the site to the very last wooden beam set in place. For example, one day when the workers ran out of materials, a large ox-drawn wagon filled with what they needed arrived at the building site. When roofbeams were cut too short, John would pray over them and they would stretch. There were also days when John miraculously multiplied bread and wine to feed the workers. Â When John and two other Dominicans were attacked by bandits on the road, one of the bandits tried to stab John, but his hand withered and became paralyzed. The gang let the brothers go, then decided to ask for their forgiveness. John made the Sign of the CrossÂ over them and the thief's hand was healed. Â His blessings also caused the breadbox of a neighboring widow to stay miraculously full, feeding her and her six children. He prevented disease from coming to the cattle of his parishioners, and cured three people whose heads had been crushed in accidents. Consequently, he is the patron saint of head injuries.Â John was born in 1400 and died in 1511 of natural causes.Read More
