EL PASO, TX (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee native will be installed Tuesday night as the new Catholic bishop in El Paso Texas.
A special Mass will take place at the El Paso Convention Center for 59-year-old Mark Seitz. He’ll become the new leader for 55 Catholic parishes and 22 missions in 10 West Texas counties.
Seitz was most recently the Auxiliary Bishop in Dallas. He’ll replace former El Paso Bishop Armando Ochoa, who is now the diocese leader in Fresno California.
Seitz says he wants to listen to people – and he’s eager to get to know clergy members and their congregations.
