Gallery: Bishop Seitz blesses region during ongoing Covid-19 battle

Friday morning, the Most Reverend Mark J. Seitz, Bishop of the Diocese of El Paso offered a solemn blessing at the Scenic Drive overlook, as the city and the region battle the surge of COVID-19 cases.

“The rise in Coronavirus cases in El Paso has caused me so much concern,” Bishop Seitz said. “I hope that the people of the City of El Paso can find some comfort in this prayer and blessing over the city on Friday.”

The Bishop held a  short prayer service followed by the blessing over the City and County of El Paso and the entire region.

Our very own Ruben R. Ramirez was there and we bring you his view of the event via this gallery.

I am Currently working as the UTEP Athletics Photographer. I'm a 1973 Graduate of Austin High School, was Honorably Discharged from the United States Marine Corps (USMC) in 1976, after serving 3 years. My journalism career began September 1976 with the El Paso Herald-Post and ended in 1997 after 21 years, when the HP closed. I then went to work for KDBC-TV Channel 4, local CBS affiliate for 14 months. Upon leaving KDBC-TV, I then joined the El Paso Times for another 21 years. I recently retired in January 2019 and am a Freelance Photographer and Staff Photographer back where my career began with the El Paso Herald-Post (WEB version.) So here's to 21 more years hopefully with the news organization that gave me my start. Semper Fi!!!
