Bishop Seitz joins Pope Francis in day of prayer, fasting for end of COVID19 Pandemic

On Thursday, May 14, Bishop Seitz asked the Diocese of El Paso to join Pope Francis and all people of faith from around the world to pray for an end to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am calling on all Catholics in the Diocese to join with everyone around the world to pray to an end to the Coronavirus,” Bishop Seitz said.

“I hope that all of us can join together in a day of prayer and fasting and in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters of all faiths and religions,” he said.

“Since prayer is a universal value, I have accepted the proposal of the Higher Committee for Human Fraternity for believers of all religions to unite spiritually this 14th of May for a day of prayer, fasting, and works of charity, to implore God to help humanity overcome the coronavirus pandemic,” Pope Francis said, speaking before the Regina Coeli on May 3rd.

“Remember: May 14th, all believers together, believers of different traditions, to pray, fast, and perform works of charity”.

In addition, Bishop Seitz called on all parishes with Bells to ring them at 12:00 noon in solidarity and prayer for an end to the deadly Coronavirus.
