Santa Teresita Mission - Buena Vista

Endowment Fund

The community of Buena Vista was settled in the 1920s by families working at ASARCO. Santa Teresita was originally established as a chapel of San José de Cristo Rey Parish in Smeltertown in 1933. In 1962, the chapel was demolished to make way for Paisano Drive. The new church was inaugurated in June 1963 at Zapal Street.

Why Give to Endowment?

Endowment 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 endowment funds.
