Pope Francis: "Go to Confession!"
New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops' Statement on Assisted Suicide The bishops of New Mexico strongly oppose any possibility of the authorization of assisted suicide by the state. The emerging debate surrounding physician-assisted suicide forces all the members of society to pause. Our laws are meant to protect life. The Catholic Church teaches that we are stewards of life and in heeding God’s command “Thou shall not kill” (Ex 20:13) we recognize that we cannot dispose of life. More>

Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan on Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage
I am not surprised, but I am deeply disappointed regarding the Supreme Court ruling to strike down the Federal Defense of Marriage Act and failure to support California’s Proposition 8. As a result, the definition of marriage has radically changed. The repercussions of the Court’s decision will prove to be very difficult for our society and family law. We respect all our brothers and sisters regardless of sexual identity. However, the Archdiocese of Santa Fe will continue to uphold and defend the Biblical definition of marriage (Matthew 19:4), the sole union between one man and one woman.
Bishops Urge Senate to Improve and Approve Immigration Reform Legislation

Border enforcement should not be prerequisite for legalization
Amendments that impose further restrictions endanger passage.

NMCCB Statement on Marriage In these most sacred days when our Jewish brothers and sisters celebrate the Feast of Passover, and we Christians recall the saving actions of Jesus Christ, the eyes of our state and nation have been diverted to the halls of government to await authoritative interpretations of the law of the land regarding the age-old institution of marriage. We, the Catholic bishops of New Mexico, wish, in these circumstances, to reiterate our belief in the definition of marriage as a life-long bond between one man and one woman. More> En español>
