  • Was an interesting visit to see the old chapel and holy dirt. There was a lot more there than I realized. It was a nice short stop and they fortunately have parking.

  • We came up from Santa Fe for a special Ash Wednesday service and were very pleased. Father Gabriel officiated the mass and gave out Ashes, the mass took place outside in the back outdoor mass area. The Special day was made even more special by the very Holy , Peaceful vibe the Santuario emits. Highly recommend a visit for All people, regardless of your Faith.
  • We attended mass here, it was held outside. Such a calming place, we needed a break from all the demands of life. Well worth the trip. Thank you Lord for the gift of your creation and the wonderful people who attended to your people.
