"Depending on where this goes, we could lose the mission and the school," said Chris Halter, executive director of St. Bonaventure Indian Mission and School.
The school charges no tuition and provides two free meals a day for children who too often live in broken homes plagued by poverty and violence, Halter said.
"We're sort of an oasis where kids can come and get two meals a day and an education," he said. "The problem is, it's up to the bankruptcy court what is going to be done. What we're going to look like at the end of this, I don't know."
St. Bonaventure employs 65 people, of whom 55 are Navajos, making it one of the area's largest employers, Halter said.
The Diocese of Gallup provides no financial support for the mission or the school, Halter said. Private donations pay for St. Bonaventure's $4 million annual budget, he said.
"We don't have any animosity with the diocese," he said, "but when you are at risk of losing 40 years of legacy and everything that we've built here because of this bankruptcy, that's when it gets frustrating."
