Dec. 13, Sunday, 2:00 pm, Simbang Gabi (Evening Mass) at Sangre de Cristo Catholic Church, 8901 Candelaria Road NW, Albuquerque, NM 87112. Space is limited so please register and call Myrna Samson 505-319-8821. DUE TO COVID19, there had been requests to have it available ONLINE due to Covid. Stay tune.


Please convey to all our dear FILIPINO-AMERICAN COMMUNITY and friends around NM that all the ASF public Masses will be suspended effective October 26. We still have this week end (Oct. 24/25) Masses, and will be hearing from your respective Pastors the new C19 directive from Archbishop Wester. All future Masses will be celebrated only by the Priests and Deacons with out the congregation present until the new directive is issued.

Also, I will continue offering Masses for the Filipino-American and Friends All Souls Day Memorial in private. I will continue offering the  3 remaining Masses (in my private time) on the following dates: Nov. 19, Dec.3 and Dec. 13. If they wish, to mail the forms so that I can include all the deceased loved ones, relatives, friends and others during the private memorial Masses. All the list will be included in the “NM Fil-Am Ministry Book of Prayers” that I will begin instituting this year and beyond. They can invite others and share the information even after November 2. And not to forget: to include the senders name, address, phone number and email so I will know where it came from. Just for my record purposes.

Let us all pray together for safety, good health, peace of heart and mind, and to end the C19 pandemic. I will surely continue praying for all of you. God bless us all!

In Christ,

Fr. Joel O. Bugas

The Census usually sends letter to residents that gives the code to enter in the ONLINE Survey. If you have not received yours or if you need help, contact NM Asian Family Center that is working hand in hand with the Census. It is imperative that we ALL participate so that we, Filipinos, are counted and NOT forgotten. This is done only every ten years. It will take only 10 minutes of your time to fill up the form so please participate. Thank you.

Relevant links are mentioned below. Here’s the email we got from NM Asian Family Center (March 23, 2020):

The recent Coronavirus situation led us to follow strict protocols to practice social distancing to keep everyone safe and healthy. We encourage you to take the 2020 census as soon as possible online or by the phone from the safety and comfort of your space. Don’t wait for a Census worker to knock on your door. Being counted ensures our community’s fair share of resources and fair representation!

If you need help, please contact us at or at  or 505.717.2877.
