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

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.

"Conception and Mission"

St. Kateri, the inspiration for the Rosary Walk, spent countless hours out in nature walking the trails in solitude, praying her rosary. Come visit this very special place to meditate, pray and strengthen your relationship with God.

"Lily of the Mohawks"

Saint Kateri, forbidden to practice her faith in the village where she lived, would walk the woods and place marks on the trees while stacking small piles of rocks along the path to measure her prayers. That’s how she said the rosary. Read more about the life of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha and shrine…
