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.
