On Thursday, February 2nd, students and teachers from six Catholic Schools around the Diocese traveled to Gallup for Mass at the Cathedral and a diocesan-wide Miracle Fair.
At Mass, celebrant Bishop James S. Wall thanked the students and teachers for their dedication to education and learning.
During the Miracle Fair, students in three divisions chose a Catholic saint to present to a panel of judges, who then narrowed down the best presentations, choosing a winner and five runners-up from each division. After the school Mass, each student received his or her award from the bishop.
