Bringing Christ to Those in Need

San Pedro Mission Parish, Teotepeque

San Pedro Apostle Catholic Church is a mission parish in El Salvador ministered by the Cleveland Diocese. Based in Teotepeque, a small farming community situated in the mountains near the Pacific Ocean, San Pedro Parish serves as a hub for missionary outreach to more than 26 local communities up and down the coast. 

In addition to providing pastoral care to thousands of Salvadorans, our outreach includes a parish school and clinic, housing and water projects, scholarship programs, pre- and post-natal nutrition care, and much more.

Housing for the Poor

Through the organization Operation Rescue Inc., the Cleveland Mission has built more than 100 homes for the poorest of the poor in numerous local communities. 

School, Clinic, and Scholaships

The Parish School and Clinic provide access to quality education and healthcare in a situation where neither are readily available to the typical Salvadoran family.
