COVID-19 UPDATE (August 19, 2021) at SMDLP
Based on the latest health directive from the Governor's office, all those attending indoor services, whether vaccinated or not, MUST wear a mask. SMDLP will strictly enforce this new mandate. You may continue to sit anywhere in the church and as an additional safety precaution, we will  disinfect the church after each Mass. The dispensation to attend Mass is still in effect and we will continue to live-stream the 9:30 am Sunday Mass now and into the future.
Thank you for your patience and understanding with the many changes and challenges we faced, and continue to face, during the pandemic. If you have any questions please feel free to call the parish office at (505) 473-4200.


Dear friends in Christ,
Welcome to Santa Maria de la Paz, a Catholic faith community that serves many and welcomes all. We are a parish that has been blessed with a history of outstanding parishioner commitment, investment and involvement. It’s our spiritual home where each lives for the other and all live for God.

Whether as a current member of our parish family or an individual searching for a parish, I hope and pray that you find this community of faith warm, welcoming and committed to the Gospel of Jesus and His church. Our parish family is encouraged to seek a deeper understanding of what it means to use our time, talents and treasure by serving our church in one or more of our many ministries and by being good stewards. Our parishioner’s presence enriches us and builds up the life of the Church.

We are blessed to be one of eight churches in our community that founded the only regional Catholic elementary school in our Archdiocese; Santo Nino Regional Catholic School was open in 2006.  We are also blessed to support St. Michael’s High School, a high school rich in Catholic tradition. When you have some time, please visit both schools either in person or on the web by clicking the links below. Prayerfully consider the strong academic environment of Santo Nino and St. Michael’s for your students; I assure you it’s a wonderful opportunity for a child in the early years of their formation. 

So as you glance through our website, you will find the elements of our faith community that we hope will lead you to a deeper relationship with God, engage you in a greater sense of community with others and inspire you to wider service to our sisters and brothers.

So once again welcome, we are glad to have you with us as we journey together in and with the Lord of life, love and all good and wonderful things as Jesus is our past, present and future.

Please know you are always in my prayers.
Fr. Daniel M. Balizan
