News from the Archbishop
Archbishop John C. Wester to Host Series of Live Stream Town Hall Q&A Meetings via Facebook Live Archdiocese of Santa Fe Official
ALBUQUERQUE – Thursday, July 9, 2020 – We invite you join us for a series of Live-Streamed Town Hall Meetings with Archbishop John C. Wester starting in July through October 2020. The two-part town hall meetings will be in English (from 6:00-6:30 p.m MT.) and Spanish (from 6:30-7:00 p.m. MT). The purpose of the town hall meetings is to invite people of God to ask Archbishop Wester questions they may have concerning the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the faithful. To submit a question, sign into your Facebook account and type your questions during the live stream into the chat or go to http://www.archdiosf.org/reopening and fill in the online form. Please see the schedule below.
It is of utmost importance to remember that the Church values everyone’s safety and well-being. Life is sacred and we will continue to take every precaution to protect our community from COVID-19. As the crisis continues to impact our world at an alarming rate, it is more imperative than ever we heed the advice of our global scientists and public health experts. I encourage people of good will to stay the course, wear your mask, practice social distancing. Together, we can save lives.

Due to limited seating at Mass (40 parishioners per Mass), we are turning on the outside speakers for parishioners to listen to Mass in their vehicles. For Communion, an Extraordinary Minister will dispense the Eucharist outside the front of the church. God be with all of us during this difficult time. Thank you for your support and patience, while we try new things.
Father Emmanuel will be celebrating his 23rd Anniversary of Ordination. We will be having a drive-by honoring Father on August 23rd from 1 pm– 2 pm. If you would like to bring a sign or a gift for Father, you are welcomed to. Help us to show our gratitude and love for all Father Emmanuel does for our parish and community.
During the pandemic, Father Emmanuel and the OLOG Staff are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe and healthy. At this time please limit office visits if the matter can be resolved over the phone. We can handle most needs online or with a call, such as Mass intentions, Sacramental arrangements, certificates, etc. The office is accepting bank cards as a form of payment for all Parish Office and Faith Formation needs. Thank you for your continued support during this time. The goal is to keep everyone safe.
Confession is being held by appointment only at this time. Please contact the office to schedule.
The church is open Monday-Friday from 9 am– 1 pm. Please call prior to coming, so doors will be unlocked.
Registration for Faith Formation Classes is now open. Please contact the Faith Formation Office for more information. Packets for home-school learning can be picked up in the Faith Formation Office.
Our parish is taking applications for a maintenance person. The position is 20 hours a week (usually Monday-Friday 9 am to 1 pm). Anyone interested is asked to contact the Parish Office.
REASONS WHY I WEAR A MASK IN PUBLIC:
- OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE (1 Samuel 15: 22): Obedience to God through listening to Him as He speaks to me through His Church and men and women (Doctors and Scientists). God has given talents and intelligence to unravel things as they impact the world.
- HUMILITY: I do not know if I have Covid-19, therefore I can spread the virus before I have its symptoms.
- KINDNESS: I do not know if the person next to me has a family member who is extremely ill or has an autoimmune disease, I might be endangering their life.
- LOVE: I want to do what is required of me to assist in stopping the spread of this deadly virus. That way everyone will be safe and healthy, and everything can go back to normal. I wear the mask because I love you, I care about you and I do not want to make you sick.
ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE!!! “The Lord knows that evil and sin do not define us; they are diseases and infections. And He comes to heal them with the Holy Eucharist, which contains the antibodies to our negative memory. With Jesus, we can become immune to sadness. We will always remember our failures, troubles, problems at home and at work, our unrealized dreams. But their weight will not crush us because Jesus is present even more deeply, encouraging us with His love.” Pope Francis. God loves you and so do I.
It is that time of year, the Wreaths Across America Committee is once again selling wreaths for our Annual Ceremony. Every year our goal is to sell enough wreaths to adorn the graves of every veteran in Our Lady of Guadalupe Cemetery. Because of COVID-19, it is uncertain if a ceremony will take place this year; however, we still plan to uphold our commitment to our respected deceased veterans and provide a wreath for each of them. Plans are also in the works to conduct a ceremony should we be allowed to have mass gatherings once again. If you would like to purchase a wreath, please contact Coordinator Patsy Vega at 505-340-4088 or the Parish Office. Your gracious support and generosity in this endeavor is greatly appreciated.

But in 217 he rebelled against the Church when Callistus became Pope. He, too, was exiled in 235 to the Sardinian mines, where he met Pontian. Pontian helped Hippolytus reconcile with the Church bevore he died, andÂ Hippolytus, too, died as aÂ martyr. His writings were important, including "A Refutation of All Heresies", "Song of Songs", and "The Apostolic Tradition".Read More
