Trish: Thanks for posting this picture and brief history of the "El Calvario Catholic Church". Our whole family (Palacios) were members of this church. My father, Ricardo Palacios, was active in the church and help Father Pacheco. Several of my sisters were married in this church. Prior to it being torn down, I still remember Father Pacheco going around the neighborhood asking for signatures to save the church structure from being demolished. I attended CCD here and also attended Lincoln Elementary School which was located just across the street. Do you have any more photos (prior to it being torn down) of this church? I was also thinking of contacting the El Paso Catholic Diocese. Any suggestions?

Thanks...Nicolas Palacios
