I have always wanted to thank Evelyn Bell. I was one of the early students who participated in Girls Count. As a result of this program, I was able to take Algebra 1 in summer school before high school. I went on to take Calculus which provided me the confidence to pursue a technical degree in college and pursuit a career I continue to enjoy today that I would not have had without this important step in my life.

March is Women's History Month.

OUR LADY OF MT CARMEL PARISH

OUR LADY OF MT CARMEL PARISH IN 131 S. Zaragosa, El Paso, TX 79907 The first permanent mission in Texas was the mission established in Ysleta in 1680 by Spanish and Indian settlers fleeing the Pueblo Revolt in New Mexico. The Tigua Indians settled Ysleta which is the oldest town within the present limits of Texas. Ysleta meaning “little island” was named after the original Tigua Pueblo of La Isleta in New Mexico. The first Mass at the Ysleta Mission was celebrated on October 12, 1680. The original church was built of mud-chinked logs and willow reeds. Tigua labor built the permanent mission which was dedicated on October 19, 1682. In 1691, Governor Diego de Vargas gave Ysleta Mission its official name: Corpus Christi de los Tiguas de Ysleta. To the Tiguas, however, who carried the image of their patron saint, San Antonio, with them on the march from New Mexico, the mission church is known as San Antonio de Padua. After flooding destroyed the original building in 1740, a new church was built in 1744 on higher ground.

FOURTH GENERATION AND COUNTING

Ysleta Mission

The oldest of the El Paso mission churches is the Ysleta Mission, located in the community of Ysleta within the city limits of El Paso and part of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish. The parish was established in 1682 and the mission completed in 1692. The Spanish originally named the church Misión de Corpus Christi de Ysleta del Sur but it also has been known as Misión de San Antonio, in honor of the patron saint of the Tigua Indians who have worshipped at the parish since its beginnings and still do today. In 1740, the Rio Grande washed the original church away and settlers began the construction of the new structure in 1744. Like the Socorro Mission, the layout of the Ysleta Mission is an example of the New Mexican style of mission churches which were built during the 17th and 18th centuries, characterized by their linear, boxlike forms, with simplicity in their exterior decoration. In 1907, the church was partially destroyed during a fire, but was reconstructed with the addition of a three-story tower incorporating traditional Spanish mission decorations. Today, the parish has nearly 1,200 registered families.

YISD Arts, 8455 Alameda 3-9-2010a

YISD arts 8455 Alameda 3-9-10a-e These walls are part of the Galeria Mision Senecu. The mural is El Mural de la Mision de Sencu and is credited to Lupe Casillas and students from the Ysleta school district. I came upon it quite by accident. I went out to that part of Alameda to photograph something else, on the other side of the street. As I was walking to a bus stop to come back, I passed the driveway leading to Plato Academy and this Galeria, spotted part of a painted wall through the trees at the far end of a parking lot, and wandered over, glad I had enough film left in the camera.
