Bishop Peña established St. Mark Parish in July 1992. The groundbreaking ceremony for a new sanctuary was held on January 12, 2003 and the church was dedicated by Bishop Ochoa on April 21, 2004. Since it was established, St. Mark has grown into one of the largest and youngest congregations in the Diocese of El Paso with more than 2,500 families. This fund will help support the programs of the parish.
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.
