Saint Anne Church
The Church of Saint Anne is dedicated to the Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary and is the Grandmother of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is located at Pueblo de Palmas Subdivision in northern part of Penitas. It is the newest of all the 4 churches that comprise the parish. As the center of the parish, the main office is located at this site.

Our Lady of Guadalupe
The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe is dedicated to the Patroness of the Americas and Empress of the Philippine Islands. It is located in Sullivan City on Highway 83. This was formerly known as the St. Williams Church. Because of the large number of population located on this westernmost side of the parish, a satellite parish office was also opened on this site.

Saint Juan Diego Church
The Church of San Juan Diego is dedicated to the saint that brought us the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe imprinted on his cloak. It is currently located in Mission, Texas, on the corner of 7 mile line and Western. It is a growing community located at the easternmost side of the parish. In fact, plans are underway for them to build a new church on Western Road between 6th and 7th mile line.

Saint Michael the Archangel Church
The oldest of the four churches, the Church of Saint Michael the Archangel is dedicated to the prince of all angels. It is located at Los Ebanos, a community that live literally next to the Rio Grande River. It is in this community where we can still find the only licensed hand-drawn ferry that transport people from the United Sates to Mexico and vice versa.
