St. Joseph's School

Endowment Fund

In 1923, Bishop A. J. Schuler of the El Paso Diocese authorized Fr. Doherty, Pastor of St. Joseph's Church, to build a school. It was admirably conducted by the Sisters of Loretto and had four grades. Every year after that, another grade was added. The Philosophy of St. Joseph's School is rooted in the belief that each student is a child of God who has been created for a definite purpose and destined for the eternal life in heaven.

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.
