Sacred Heart Cathedral is a cathedral church located at 415 East Green Avenue in Gallup, New Mexico, United States. It is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gallup.

History[edit]

The first Sacred Heart church was built by Father George Julliard in 1899.[1][2] Part of the building collapsed in 1916 and a new structure on Hill Street between 4th and 5th Streets replaced it the following year. When the Diocese of Gallup was established in 1939, Sacred Heart Church became its cathedral.[3] The present cathedral dates from 1955 and replaced the 1917 sanctuary at a cost of $500,000.[4] Franciscan Friars served the parish until July 1, 1981, when the first diocesan priest, the Rev. Alfred Tachias, became pastor and cathedral rector.
