Holy Week Schedule on Facebook Live


Motivated by concern for our Parish community and recognizing the importance of social distancing in containing the spread of COVID-19, Bishop Mark Seitz has made the difficult but necessary decision to temporarily suspend the public celebration of Mass including on Sundays as well as Confirmations weddings and funerals masses for the foreseeable future. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be made available at the discretion of the Pastor of the parish. In addition, all parish events that would gather a group larger than 10 will be cancelled or postponed. Churches will be closed for the time being until a shortage of cleaning supplies necessary to assure that our churches are safe can be remedied.

More information will be forthcoming shortly

We highly encourage all of our Catholic faithful within the diocese of El Paso to download the MyParish App by texting app to the number 88202 to remain up to date on any decisions that have been made.

In memory of the 22 victims

Heavenly Father, You hold time within your hands, and see it all, from beginning to end. Please keep and carry these precious people in their sadness and loss. Cover them with your great wings of love, give their weary hearts rest and their minds sound sleep. Lord, lift their eyes so that they may catch a glimpse of eternity, and be comforted by the promise of heaven. We ask all this in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.

Statement from Fr. Miguel Briseño

The impact of the Coronavirus is truly impacting our daily lives as we continue to hear the number of people who have been affected by the virus.  The Bishop this afternoon made a statement concerning the steps that the diocese is taking to decrease the spread of the virus.  He has had to suspend something very important and central to the life of the Church – the celebration of the Eucharist (Mass) on Sunday and during the week.

I would ask that you would take the same time that you would be at church on Sunday, to reflect on the richness of the Scriptures for Sunday and pray as a family.

I am presently looking at ways in which we can bring the Mass to you on Sunday and throughout the week through live streaming via Facebook.  I will let you know the times in which it will take place so that you can join us.

Remember that this is only temporary, and we need to find means in which we can celebrate that which is important to us all – the Eucharist.  Let us keep each other in prayer!
