Response to COVID-19


Mass is open to the public.

Mass at the Norbertine Abbey is open to the public with recommended COVID guidelines from the Archdiocese of Santa Fe still in place, which can be found on this link. Masks are no longer required but highly recommended. There will also be those not comfortable being in the presence of unmasked people; please be respectful of them. We will continue to livestream the Mass on our YouTube channel, as the Sunday Mass obligation remains suspended.

Spirituality Center

The health and safety of our guests and staff are of primary concern. In response to COVID-19, the staff of the Norbertine Spirituality Center were trained and certified through the NM Safe Certified program designed to assist New Mexico businesses operate safely and responsibly in a COVID-positive world. We continue to follow the guidance from the Office of the Governor of New Mexico and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Although it is no longer required, we ask that visitors be respectful of those who still wear masks inside the Abbey Church, Norbertine Library, desert chapel, Our Lady of Guadalupe Commons building, and Abbey office.

We invite individuals to be on retreat for a minimum of two nights. If you would like more information or schedule a retreat, please email
