Hello, dear brothers, and Happy New Year!


One of the great joys of our vocation as spiritual fathers is in helping those under our care to follow the Lord's will for their lives.

Along those lines, would you please consider extending this invitation to our 2022 Discernment Retreat to any men you know who may be open to discerning diocesan priesthood? 


Signing up is easy; all they have to do is follow this link and fill out the registration form:


The retreat will be at Pecos Benedictine Monastery and will begin at 5:00 PM on Friday, January 28th

and end at 12:00 PM on Sunday, January 30th. 


The retreat is free for participants and open to men aged 18-50, though 17-year-olds may attend if they are currently in their final year of high school. 

If you cannot think of anyone in particular with whom to share this invitation, I ask that you at least publicize it on your parish social media and/or website. 

If any of you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to send me an email or call me on my cell phone at 505-917-5352. 

Most of all, I ask for your prayers for all of the efforts of the Vocations Office and for the success of this retreat in particular.


God bless you all!

Fr. Michael Niemczak
