To write a history of our parish, the history of Curry County and the city of Clovis must be taken into account. The economy of the State, County and City play an important part in the life of the parishioner and the growth of the parish. Clovis is situated on the far Eastern side of New Mexico. Our land is high, flat, prairie land, almost treeless, no woods, lakes or rivers. We are geographically almost more Texan in culture, economy and growth than we are New Mexican. We are rather far from Santa Fe and the State government.
