About this Fund

Located near downtown El Paso, Texas, Cathedral High School was founded in 1925 to offer a rigorous academic and value-based education for young men in the region. Although the school is owned and administered by the Diocese of El Paso, the Brothers of the Christian Schools (known in the U.S. simply as the Christian Brothers) have been involved in the school since its foundation. The Christian Brothers are a Roman Catholic religious teaching congregation founded by the Patron Saint of teachers, Saint Jean-Baptiste de la Salle.

Today, Cathedral High School continues to lay a solid foundation that prepares students with the academic aptitude and ethic of service necessary for producing modern leaders.

  • The school has just over 500 students, the vast majority being Hispanic; the school also draws significant numbers from Ciudad Juárez in Mexico.
  • The school considers its programs in Campus ministry, community service and religious education to be central to the incorporation of Catholic Christian spirituality into the daily lives of students
  • Traditionally, 100% of Cathedral students are admitted to two-year and four-year colleges and universities.
  • The value of service is reinforced among students by required volunteerism and service learning projects throughout the community. Due to the diversity of our international student body, students have actively participated in a range of student-led initiatives that foster awareness for the sanctity of life, the physically disabled, the elderly, and other social challenges.

Why Give to Endowment?

Endowed funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the ministry/parish/school. In time the income generated by the gift will far exceed the original donation.

As a result, endowed funds provide a perpetual, supplemental source of income for such things as the enhancement of programs and ministries, facilities maintenance, scholarships and seminary assistance, priest retirement, etc. Learn more about endowed funds.
