Monsignor Robert Getz
Diocese of Las Cruces, New Mexico

A Light of Christ in the Desert

Retired yet on call to 46 parishes and 45 mission churches throughout the diocese, Monsignor Robert Getz is deeply connected to Catholics across New Mexico’s desert. Over the course of his priesthood, this humble servant of God has celebrated more than 26,400 Masses and administered thousands of sacraments. He founded two schools and established two parishes. Inspired by his example, 10 men have gone to seminary and five women have entered convents. In addition to his service to the people of the diocese, Monsignor Getz cares for the spiritual needs and formation of his brother priests. Knowing the hardships they face in this under-resourced area, his support has led them to greater well-being and given them the strength to continue their own ministries.
