Our Bishop: The Most Rev. James S. Wall, Fourth Bishop of Gallup.
A Welcome from our local Pastor, The Very Reverend Alberto Avella-Martinez:
Welcome to the Catholic Community of the Western portion of Cibola County in the Diocese of Gallup.
We are the four parishes of St. Teresa of Avila in Grants, St. Vivian in Milan, San Rafael in the village of San Rafael and San Mateo in the village of San Mateo.
We share a Catholic Heritage here in the shadow of Mt. Taylor that is 400 years old.
We embrace all peoples and cultures and invite them to share in the Eucharistic Banquet together with our Bishop, Pastor, priests, deacons, lay ministers and all the baptized as we build the Kingdom of God in the communities of Grants and Milan, San Rafael and San Mateo.
Remember our motto: Four Parishes - For God - For Each Other.

Failure to comply would bring about thousands of dollars of penalties for every employee, effectively closing down our Catholic hospitals, Catholic schools, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, nursing homes, etc.
Never before in the history of the United States has the Federal Government forced citizens to directly purchase what so directly violates their beliefs. Read More....
