Welcome to San Miguel

Welcome to Old San Miguel Mission, the Catholic Church in Socorro, NM.

San Miguel is a vibrant parish in the heart of central New Mexico. Our mission is to strive to bring people closer to God. We, the faith filled members of the Parish and its Missions, part of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, find strength, unity and grace in the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. As the voices and hands of Jesus in our time, our purpose is to express God's grace by offering Christion Love and Service to each other and to everyone we meet. We reach out to the world in prayer, action and deeds in unity with the Holy Roman Catholic Church.

Liturgy of the Hours


We are now praying the Evening Prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours following the daily Mass.

We invite you and encourage you to participate in what is the official prayer of the Church. The prayer in which the body of Christ, the Church, and Jesus its Divine Head pay in worship to the Father.

The prayers, along with the sequence of responses will be provided on paper at the entrances of the Church each day.
