On Monday, Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso’s officials announced that Matt Maher is the featured artist at their 13th Annual Foundation of Faith Dinner on Thursday, September 19, 2019 from 5-9 p.m. at the El Paso Convention Center.

The Foundation of Faith Dinner aims to bring the community together to celebrate faith, experience the wisdom and grace of renowned national and international speakers, and disseminate the Stewardship message of, “Pray, Serve, Give.”

Maher has nine GRAMMY nominations, 20 Gospel Music Association Dove award nominations and multiple wins. His hits include, “Your Grace Is Enough”, “Firelight”, “Lord I Need You, and “Echoes One”. Tickets to the event are $100 for individuals or $1,000 for a table of 10.

“We’re excited to bring Matt Maher to El Paso because he has a great following and is a highly respected artist around the world,” said Andi Meece, Chair of the Foundation of Faith Dinner committee. “Matt is sure to energize, inspire and bless our dinner audience with his concert and message of love for our Lord, hence, our theme this year is ‘When We Sing, We Pray Twice’ from St. Augustine.”

Every year what I look forward to most is bringing people together to celebrate. Following El Paso’s mass shootings, we want to do even more to give our guests an inspiring and faith-filled experience and honor our community.”

Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso Celebrates Bishop Mark’s 5th Anniversary

In honor of Bishop Mark J. Seitz’s 5th anniversary, the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso launched the 545Fund, a campaign to raise resources for the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund.

The Most Rev. Seitz was installed the Bishop for the Diocese of El Paso on July 9, 2013.

The Bishop’s Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for students enrolling in the 6th grade or above and are renewable for as long as the student attends an El Paso Catholic school and remains in good standing.

The amount of individual Bishop’s Scholarship awards range from $500 to $6,000 annually.

According to the foundation, their goal is to grow the Bishop’s Scholarship Fund to $500,000 to provide an annual distribution of $20,000 for students to attend Catholic school.

Since 2001, the Catholic Foundation has raised $15 million for endowment, raises $2 million each year through the Progress Appeal and $1 million annually from outside grants.

The Foundation manages 88 separate endowment funds.

The Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso is an independent 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization established in 2001 to support the growing needs of the Catholic community.
