The Roman Catholic Diocese of Gallup is a multicultural, expansive diocese, comprising 55,000 square miles in Northeastern Arizona and Northwestern New Mexico. There are 53 parishes, 13 schools, and 5 social centers within the diocesan boundaries—all serving approximately 58,000 Catholics among a total population of 490,000.
We are a Catholic community working to help foster the overall fulfillment of life and to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
From its foundation, St. Anthony’s Catholic Mission has been providing quality Catholic teaching to the people of the Zuni Pueblo.
The St. Anthony’s Catholic Parish and School were both established with the philosophy that “the Catholic Faith and a receiving a good education is key for Native American youth to help break the cycle of unemployment and poverty”.
ST. ANTHONY’S INDIAN SCHOOL has been serving the Zuni community for nearly 100 years. The Sisters of Saint Francis of Perpetual Adoration started to run and operate the school with 43 students on September 3, 1923.
St. Anthony aims to successfully equip its alumni with the academic, moral and cultural ethos necessary for the 21st century. The ST. ANTHONY’S INDIAN SCHOOL is open to students of all religious persuasions offering a high quality education with a strong Catholic ethos.
