Bishop James Wall is the fourth Bishop of the Diocese of Gallup.

“It is no exaggeration to say that providing young people with a sound education in the faith represents the most urgent internal challenge facing the Catholic community in your country.”

These words were spoken by Pope Benedict XVI in a speech to certain U.S. Bishops during a visit to Rome. Bishop Wall was present for the speech, and brought the spirit of the pontiff’s words back with him to the Diocese of Gallup.
