About This Fund

Father Carlos Pinto, S.J. planned and built Immaculate Conception Church in June 1893 as the sister church to Sacred Heart. The rectory was finished and the Altar and Rosary Society established in 1901.

The first meeting of the Knights of Columbus in the state of Texas was held in Marquette Hall, located in the basement of Immaculate Conception Church, in February 1902.

When the Diocese of El Paso was created in March 1914, Immaculate Conception became the Provisional Cathedral until the opening of St. Patrick in 1917.

In 2014, Immaculate Conception renewed celebration of the usus antiquior, the traditional Latin Mass, at a church and on an altar that were erected when this liturgy was ubiquitous in the life of the universal Church.

To this day, Immaculate Conception continues to be a landmark of the downtown landscape.
