“This is a call to serve and I am called and ordained to serve,” Fr. Ogba stated. “Thus, my position as Superintendent for Catholic Schools offers me a great opportunity to bring my service and God’s love to bear on the continuous growth of our student’s academic and spiritual lives. I look forward to a harmonious working relationship with all stakeholders for a safe, secure, and disciplined learning environment that projects the church, parents, businesses and community members as active collaborators in our children’s education”.

“I am so grateful to Father Ogba for his willingness to serve in our Diocese. His background and education make will make him a welcome addition to our staff as well as a leader dedicated to living out the Gospel message,” said Bishop James S. Wall.

The Diocese of Gallup also wishes to extend gratitude to Mrs. Suter for her five years of excellent service to our Catholic Schools. Her dedication and hard work has resulted in a strong and fruitful academic environment for students and their families, and we look forward to continuing this standard of excellence with Fr. Ogba as our new Superintendent.
