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.
