That’s a very good question, and not an easy one to answer. The Latin mass in Santa Fe is said most Sundays by Father Terry Brennan, backed up by a few other priests in the archdiocese who know the Tridentine form. But the mission is not a parish and in fact belongs to the Christian Brothers who run St. Michael’s High School.
I would suggest you call the mission at (505) 983-3974 and ask for Frank, who oversees things there. He may have some information for you to use.
My other suggestion would be to have your chaplain contact Father Ricardo Russo, who is the New Mexico National Guard Chaplain in Santa Fe. Fr. Russo says a Novus Ordo mass at the mission at 5 p.m Sundays. He may also have the connections to help you out.

No. Many women attending choose to cover their heads, but it is up to them. The overall dress code is informal, but proper.
Anonymous said: Dear Latin Mass Santa Fe: Will there be a TLM this Thursday for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary? If so, please let me know the time, and where it will be held. In Christ, D. Francisco De La Pava (310.228.8280)
I’m sorry that I do not know the answer. I am not currently in Santa Fe. Please call the mission at (505) 983-3974 and I’m sure they can give you the information.
From regular Latin Mass-goer Kenneth Edlund:
I’m happy to share the news that this Sunday at 2:00 P.M. we’ll have Mass with Fr. Terry Brennan. Fr. Terry has agreed to be our shepherd now that our dear Fr. Jakobiak has had to retire. Hope you can join us!
Father Jakobiak plans to say Easter Mass at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 31, at the San Miguel Mission.
On Palm Sunday, the Latin Mass in Santa Fe was attended by more than 30 people. Those from out of town are invited to attend.
More than 35 people attended Latin Mass at the San Miguel Mission on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013. Thank you, Father Jakobiak, for making it possible for traditional Santa Fe Catholics to pray and worship in such a meaningful manner.
It’s sad that only one new priest graduated this seminary to enter the New York Archdiocese, but a hopeful sign that his first Mass was Latin Tridentine.

Father Jakobiak spoke about the authority of the Church in having separated in its earliest days the true stories from the apocryphal in gathering the teachings that have come down to us through the centuries.
The streets around Grand Central Terminal were crowded today with Catholics showing their faith on Ash Wednesday. It might surprise the rest of the country, but Catholicism in New York is alive and well. I am in within walking distance of two Sunday Latin Masses.
Somebody please post observations of Ash Wednesday in Santa Fe…
