Catholic credit union opens west-side office

Catholic Family Federal Credit Union said it opened its new corporate office and branch today at 717 N. Socora, near Central and Tyler.

The $1.2 million, 6,200-square-foot facility will serve as the $25 million credit union's sole location.

It closed its only other branch at 1902 W. Douglas in the Delano neighborhood, following a couple of robberies.

The credit union was founded in 1947 and has more than 4,100 members.
