Successful Diaper Drive to Benefit
East Mountain CareNet in Moriarty

Pro-Life Ministries of Holy Child Parish would like to thank all our parishioners who donated so generously to our diaper drive. CareNet provides Mom's assistance with Crisis Pregnancies. All of their services are free, including ultrasounds, pregnancy testing, STD testing, and parenting classes. Thanks to your donations we are able to assist Mom's not only with baby wipes and diapers, but also with baby clothes, bedding, and a new stroller! Once again your generosity and your prayers have made the HCP Pro-Life Ministries diaper drive a huge success! Please continue to pray for all mothers and their babies.

Annual Catholic Appeal Update

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2021 ACA campaign. Our Parish was able to meet the 2021 ACA campaign goal and received a generous rebate. The rebate will go towards paying the loan payment on the school building. Through the Annual Catholic Appeal, Catholics can help Archdiocesan ministries and services so that every parish may have what it needs to be a vibrant spiritual community. Contributions provide support to these programs: Seminarians, Pastoral Ministries Division, Catholic Schools, St. Vincent de Paul Society, TV/Online Mass, Deacon Formation, and others.

Adoration in Our Chapel

Chapel is open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
If you cannot keep your hour of adoration but before calling the office in need of a sub, we encourage you …
, communicate with your hour partner (if you have one) to ensure the hour is covered. Second, if you're still in need of a substitute, refer to the Adorers' Substitute list (copies will be in the chapel). Third, If the above steps are unsuccessful, call other Adorers for possible exchange of day/hour (copies will be in the chapel). Once you have a substitute in place, please call the office and let us know who will be covering your hour or If you have not been able to find a replacement.

A permanent person or people is needed to cover the 10:00 am Wednesday Adoration hour. If you are being called to this, please let us know. In the meantime, if anyone would be willing to sub for this hour until a permanent replacement is found please let us know also.

Rebuild My Church Capital Campaign

Prayer to the Holy Infant of PragueSince 2008, Holy Child School has served as the only Catholic Classical school in New Mexico and the only Catholic school in the East Mountain community. The Lord has blessed our mission to form hearts and minds in the study of the good, the true, and the beautiful. Enrollment has grown 30% in the past five years, and with the current 87 students, the school is bursting at the seams. For our parish school to accommodate more families who desire an authentic Catholic education for their children, the need for physical space is crucial.

A new school facility will:

  • Accommodate the increasing enrollment numbers
  • Allow mixed grade classes to develop into single grade classes
  • Provide a science room and space for the expanding Suzuki strings and Latin programs
  • Free up space in Blessed Miguel Pro Hall for parish ministries/adult education
As a member of Holy Child Parish, your support in this campaign is of great importance. Everyone is needed. Please pray and seek the Lord's guidance on what your personal sacrifice should be for your three-year commitment. Supporters of the new building will have an impact on future generations of Catholics in the East Mountains.
