ABOUT US

DIOCESE OF GALLUP VOCATIONS OFFICE

Supporting the Next Generation of Priests

The Vocations Office provides assistance to men who are in the priestly formation program and works to foster priestly vocations in the Diocese.

In 2014, the Vocations director, Fr. Matthew Keller, had the idea to combine his love of classic cars with his mission to support seminarians. Almost immediately, a friend noticed a Chevelle Super Sport in need of restoration.

And so, the V8s for Vocations program was born.

IN THE NEWS

Father Keller, vocations director with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gallup, N.M., “grew up in a car-rich environment” and never lost his love for automobiles, even after he received a higher calling. When one of Keller’s parishioners suggested he restore a car, Keller took it a step further. He thought that rebuilding a classic, raffling it off and using the proceeds to send a prospective priest to seminary school would be a great way to build fraternity and do God’s work at the same time.
