Archbishop Patrick Fernández Flores in 1978 - Bishop Patrick Flores became the third bishop of El Paso, Texas.

On 5 May 1970 he was consecrated a bishop by Archbishop Luigi Raimondi. He was appointed auxiliary to the archbishop of San Antonio. Also in May 1970, Flores was appointed chairman of the Texas State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and that July he became national chaplain for the League of United Latin American Citizens. In 1972, he was co-founder and honorary chairman of the Mexican-American Cultural Center in San Antonio.

In 1978 he was appointed bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of El Paso and then in 1979 the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio, which was, at the time, the largest ecclesiastical province in the United States.

In 1980, Flores became a member of the Hispanic Caucus Committee, and in 1981, he founded Catholic Television of San Antonio, the first diocesan television station in the United States. In 1997, when Billy Graham headlined a religious crusade at the Alamodome, Flores taped radio spots in English and Spanish to promote the event. Graham later credited Flores for the large response from the area's largely Catholic Hispanic community.

Flores' suit against the city of Boerne, Texas in his bid to expand St. Peter's Church there led to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision City of Boerne v. Flores (1997), which struck down certain provisions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 as unconstitutionally exceeding the powers granted to the Congress under Section Five of the Fourteenth Amendment.

His motto is Laborabo non mihi sed omnibus, "I will work not for myself but for others".

With the help of the Catholic Extension Society he traveled the United States, East and West, the first few years of his tenure, making his appeal from the pulpit. His success was evident in the continuing and establishing of Catholic ministries and institutions. He retired in 1978 and died in April 1986, greatly mourned.

SCHULER, ANTHONY J. (1869–1944). Anthony J. Schuler, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of El Paso, was born to Joseph and Albertina (Algaeir) Schuler on September 20, 1869, at St. Mary's, Pennsylvania. From there the family moved to Georgetown, Colorado, in 1876. After his father's death from a mining-accident injury in 1883, young Schuler became increasingly attached to the local priest, Rev. Nicholas C. Matz, who later became bishop of Denver. In 1885 Schuler followed Matz to Denver upon the latter's reassignment, both to assist the cleric and to further his own education. In Denver, Schuler came into contact with priests of the Society of Jesus, commonly known as Jesuits, and he subsequently decided to join their order. He entered the Jesuit novitiate at Florissant, Missouri, on December 7, 1886. His lengthy training included studies in Florissant, St. Louis, Missouri, and Woodstock, Maryland, as well as work at Sacred Heart (later Regis) College in Denver. Sebastian Cardinal Martinelli, Vatican apostolic delegate to the United States, ordained Schuler a priest at Woodstock on June 27, 1903. Thereafter Schuler returned to Denver and Sacred Heart College, where he served as prefect and, later, superior. In 1908 he was sent to El Paso to work as associate pastor at the Church of the Immaculate Conception and chaplain of both the Hotel Dieu Hospital and Holy Family chapel. In 1912 he returned to Denver, where he worked in various assignments for several years.

Meanwhile, El Paso and West Texas continued to grow. In 1880 El Paso had no Catholic church; worshippers had to cross the Rio Grande to attend services. But by the beginning of World War I the city had 10,000 Catholics and six churches. This growth had largely been overseen by Jesuits under the supervision of Carlos M. Pinto, S.J.qv The Vatican established the Diocese of El Paso on March 3, 1914. The new diocese covered more than 60,000 square miles and included fourteen counties in West Texas and five more, plus part of another, in southern New Mexico. It included some 54,000 Catholics served by thirty-one priests in twenty parishes, fifty-eight missions, and a number of hospitals and schools. Although Schuler is commonly spoken of as the first bishop of the new diocese, that distinction in fact belongs to a fellow Jesuit, the Rev. John J. Brown, rector of Sacred Heart College in Denver. Brown was appointed in January of 1915 but resigned due to poor health in June of that year, before his consecration as bishop. Schuler was subsequently appointed bishop on June 17, 1915, and consecrated on October 28 in Denver by Archbishop John Pitaval of Santa Fe. Schuler served as bishop for twenty-seven years. Early in his tenure he built a number of churches in El Paso, including Holy Family (1914), St. Joseph's (1916), St. Patrick's Cathedral (1917), and Sacred Heart (1917). He also oversaw the foundation of Loretto Academy (1923) and a diocesan high school for boys (1924) that was operated by the Brothers of the Christian Schools.

Schuler was instrumental in bringing other religious orders to serve West Texas. The First Order of Franciscans (see FRANCISCANS) arrived in 1929, followed by the Claretian Fathers in 1932. In 1925 Mexican Jesuits, exiled from their native land since 1917, moved their novitiate to El Paso. Many regard Schuler's most significant work to be the support he gave those fleeing religious persecution in Mexico. By the time of Schuler's retirement on November 29, 1942, the diocese had grown to include over 120,000 Catholics served by 115 priests in forty-six parishes. Thirteen parochial schools taught nearly 2,500 students. Bishop Schuler retired to Regis College in Denver. He died there on June 3, 1944, and was buried in Concordia Cemetery, El Paso. In 1983 his remains were moved to a vault in Mount Carmel Cemetery in that city. His marker bears the representation of the Franklin Mountains and the Texas Lone Star of his episcopal coat of arms.

The picture shows St Patrick Church, the Cathedral for the Diocese of El Paso and the mother church for 686,000 Catholics. Plans to build the church of St. Patrick originated with the Irish Catholic community in El Paso in 1908 when parishioners at Holy Family Church (formerly St. Mary Chapel) began to fundraise for a larger church. In 1916 the plans were finally realized. The interior and exterior of the church were designed in the Byzantine style of architecture and constructed from brick and carrara marble. On Thanksgiving Day 1917, the official dedication ceremony was hold by Bishop Schuler.

Bishop Anthony Joseph Schuler (1869-1944) became the first bishop of the Catholic Diocese El Paso in 1915. He served in this position until his retirement in 1942.
Born in Pennsylvania in 1868, the family moved to the mining town of Georgetown, Colo., in 1876. Schuler's father died when he was fourteen years old, and so he worked in the silver mines shoveling ore to support his family. With 17, he entered the Jesuit Seminary in Florissant, Mo., and was ordained to the priesthood in June 1901. He served as perfect and superior in different cities, before he came to El Paso, where he first worked as chaplain and associate pastor, before being appointed bishop. The Vatican established the Diocese of El Paso on March 3, 1914. During his 27-year tenure, Bishop Schuler was the only Jesuit bishop in the United States. He expanded the diocese significantly by building churches, schools, and associated Catholic institutions. Amongst them were the following projects: Holy Family, St. Joseph's, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Sacred Heart church and orphanages, Loretto Academy, St. Joseph's Sanatorium, San Jose Clinic, the Western American newspaper, the Revista Católica publishing house, and the monumental construction on Mount Cristo Rey. He also brought other religious orders to West Texas, such as the First Order of Franciscans.
Schuler cared for those in need, especially during the Mexican Revolution, when thousand of refugees, amongst them persecuted bishops and priests, looked for shelter in the border town.
