Father Hugh O'Neill, retired priest and resident at Villa Guadalupe, is an integral member of their faith family. He celebrates Mass and hears confessions, not only of the residents, but of many area priests who make it a point to seek him out for the sacrament. When Father Hugh answered the call to the priesthood he left behind a career in New York as a journalist. He felt a call to serve the Native American community and came to New Mexico where he served in the Diocese of Gallup for many years, working with the Navajo.
