Saint Kateri Rosary Walk

Bringing Native and Catholic Values Together in One Place

“The Saint Kateri Rosary Walk and shrine honors Saint Kateri Tekakwitha…the First Native American Saint. The Rosary Walk takes advantage of the natural beauty God offers, while winding its way through the southwestern landscape of Gallup, New Mexico. The Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Rosary Walk is a very special place for all.  As a visiting “Pilgrim” you will find a wonderful “Spiritual Home” to meditate, pray and strengthen your relationship with God.”

Deacon Ed Schaub, Director
All are welcome to visit Saint Kateri Rosary Walk.

Bringing Native American and Catholic Values Together

A Spiritual Home For All Who Visit

The Saint Kateri Rosary Walk will attract pilgrims and visitors from across North America and the world to Gallup New Mexico each year. An outdoor chapel will stand at the head of the Rosary Walk trail. From that point the path flows to the center of the Rosary Walk. The centerpiece will be Our Lady of Guadalupe Plaza with four pathways that loop through the surrounding terrain, each dotted with five Nichos depicting the mysteries of the rosary. You can pause, if you choose, to pray or meditate while enjoying the serenity of the surrounding landscape.
