Bishop James S. Wallhttp://dioceseofgallup.org
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.

As we celebrate Catholic Schools Week 2018, this episode reflects on the challenging and abiding call of the Church in saturating the faith in all aspects of Catholic education.
