For over 40 years...

St. Bonaventure Indian Mission and School has provided love, support and hope for a better life to the Navajo (Diné) through the generosity of all those who have shared their prayers, resources or time. Together, we complete a 'Circle of Love' that bears witness to God's constant love and represents a future that offers great promise.
