GALLUP, N.M. - The Diocese of Gallup is hosting a special raffle to help some of its members reach priesthood.
Through a program called V8s for Vocations, the diocese sends future priests to seminary in other states or overseas. Rev. Matthew Keller says that's because the Diocese of Gallup is the poorest in the U.S. and they do not have a seminary of their own.
This year's grand prize is a 1957 Ford Thunderbird.
The raffle will be held in Gallup on Jun. 22 but participants do not have to be present to win.
