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.

Last weekend was very busy, particularly in the area of Campus Ministry with Aggie Awakening IV, which was held at Holy Cross Retreat Center, and the annual Confirmation retreat, which was held at Sacramento Methodist Assembly. Both activities were quite successful, thanks in part to the energy and efforts of the various folks (team leaders- members-catechists) involved in planning and your prayers and support.
Holy week is upon us, beginning with the Palm Sunday celebration, leading through the high holy days of Triduum (including Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil) which ultimately lead to the glory of the Easter season. I highly encourage everyone to attend all of the various services, especially the Mass on Holy Thursday, where the sacred oils will be presented and folks will have an opportunity to have their feet washed; Good Friday, for the Veneration of the Cross as well as at the evening service; and the Easter Vigil on Saturday, at which time the new fire (representing the Light of Christ) and water will be blessed. Also, the Elect, those who have been preparing to enter into the Church, will be received.
Let us pray for each other as we journey through this holy season.
