Originally founded in 1613 at Isleta Pueblo, in New Mexico, and dedicated in 1621 as San Antonio De Isleta. Removed to El Paso area, 1680 (during Pueblo revolt), by Tigue Indians who brought along the Patron Saint as they accompanied fleeing Spaniards.

Re-established here in 1682. It has been named successively: Sacramento De Los Tiquas De Ysleta; Corpus Christi De Los Tiquas De Ysleta (1691); San Antonio De los Tiquas De Ysleta (1744); and Nuestra Senora Del Carmen (1874). Present Chapel has walls and bells of 1744 building.

Still ministers to the Tiguas.
