Santa Rosa de Lima Catholic Church

Pecos’ first Catholic chapel was donated by local families in 1889 and gained a missionary priest in 1890. Thirty-four years later, the Catholic faith made a permanent home in the stony Santa Rosa de Lima Church, named for the Peruvian Saint Rose.


In 1889 Catholic religious services in Pecos began in a wooden chapel named Santa Rosa, after the Peruvian saint who was the first female saint canonized from the Americas.

Today Santa Rosa de Lima has 2,000 parishioners and numerous ministries including Guadalupanas, a prayer group, summer camp, children and youth choirs, RCIA for adults, and a vibrant religious education program for children.

Four priests have been ordained for the Diocese of El Paso from Santa Rosa de Lima Parish including Rev. Pedro Dominguez, Monsignor Arturo J. Bañuelas, Rev. Trini Fuentez, and Rev. Pablo Matta.

Hours of Operation:

  • Monday–Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
