Casitas San Mateo for Retired Priests

Endowment Fund

Casitas San Mateo, a retirement living community for priests of the Diocese of El Paso, opened in 2014 on the grounds of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in El Paso’s Mission Valley. The four-building housing complex allows retired priests to share activities and prayer life, as well as to mentor young men preparing for the priesthood while studying at St. Charles Seminary. Support the men who offer their lives without expectation of financial gain.

About this Fund

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.
