The Diocese of Gallup is the poorest in the United States.

In our efforts to provide our people with opportunities for an encounter with the living Christ, we strive to alleviate some of the intense suffering through emergency shelters, food banks, substance abuse prevention programs, thrift shops, prison ministry and a nursing facility.
But we can’t do this alone. We need your help. Will you join us in our mission?
