The Rudolph Vargas Collection at Santa Teresita
“Religion is the only entity that keeps and protects real art…
In religion, I can grow and create.”
The internationally known wood carver from East Los Angeles, Rudolph Vargas, found the sanctuary for his art at Santa Teresita, which possesses the largest collection of his work. More than 50 original woodcarvings can be found in our Saint Joseph Chapel and throughout our campus, create a compelling culture of life in our Neighborhood of Care.
