St. Albert the Great Newman Center, a Roman Catholic community at New Mexico State University, as a family of faith, welcomes everyone to encounter Jesus Christ through Word, Worship, Community, and Service.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, we are changed for the better and sent forth as disciples of Christ to continue his work in the world.

Happy Easter! After our journey through the dry and sometimes barren desert of Lent we’ve arrived at the joy and glory of the good news: Jesus Christ, once dead, is alive and because HE has conquered the darkness of the tomb, we too have that same promise! It is now time to celebrate and share this Good News, with a renewed vigor and sense of great joy! Let us pray, as we walk to the Pentecost Event, for the fullness of the Holy Spirit, that we might be as bold as Peter in proclaiming the power of this new life. The new six weeks of the Easter season will be a wonderful opportunity to prayerfully discern, as a parish community, how God is asking us to live in the spirit and power of Resurrection.
I’m mindful of the countless men and women who have helped to make all of our celebrations joyful and beautiful. I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you! I hope that you all have a lovely Easter holiday!
On Tuesday, April 22, I will be leading a group of pilgrims (22 from the Diocese of Las Cruces) to Rome for the canonization of John XXIII and John Paul II. Please keep us in prayer, that we may travel safe. They’re estimating a huge amount of folks to be in Rome for this event. Know of my prayers for you!
