Holy Child Parish Tijeras, New Mexico

Welcome to Holy Child Catholic Parish in Tijeras, New Mexico


Holy Child Parish Consecrates to Mary!!

This is the announcement I've been promising you. Holy Child Parish, under Mary's motherly protection, brings the promise of great graces. Since 2017 is the 100th anniversary of Our Lady's appearance to the children in Fatima, let us make a resolution: To consecrate ourselves this year as a parish to Jesus, through Mary.

Eucharistic Adoration Adorers Needed

"Could you not watch one hour with me?" Matthew 26:40
Have you recently visited Jesus in our newly redecorated Adoration Chapel? What better way to prepare for Christmas than spending an hour each week adoring Jesus this Advent. If you can commit to a regular weekly hour, please come whenever you can or sign up to be on our substitute list. We like to schedule two adorers each hour in case one can't make it. Most of our hours from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. have only one adorer. Jesus would be delighted if you'd sign up as a second person on any of these hours. We are currently in desperate need of someone to take the Monday 11:00 a.m. hour. Please call the Parish Office if you would to ba an adorer.

Many Thanks from Our Pro-Life Ministries

The tally is in and Holy Child Parish will not be outdone in generosity! The final count was 1,709 diapers and 2,664 wipes from the church in Tijeras. The Mission churches also participated and donated 1,191 diapers and 2,194 wipes! We received a large number of baby items, clothes, blankets, hats, socks, formula, pacifiers, and much more including the baby items donated at the Children's Mass on Christmas Eve. Thank you to everyone for helping Mom's Choose Life!

Women's Pregnancy Options (Project Defending Life) has rented some temporary office space at 7009 Prospect Ave, NE - Albuquerque and they were able to take all of our donations. They really needed these items since all of their supplies were damaged in the arson fire. If you would like to help the Moms even more please go to their Home Page and scroll down to the Donate button. You can also follow them on their Facebook page.
