Diocese crest

First, our prayers and hearts go out to the community of Las Cruces. Like them, we are so grateful to God that no one was hurt during the two incidents which occurred Sunday morning.

News of these occurrences has us reflecting on our own security measures.

We continue to encourage our parishioners to be vigilant as we always have.

We ask everyone – Religious and laypeople – who feel they are seeing people or things out of the ordinary to please contact the El Paso Police Department.

We pray that today’s occurrence is an isolated one and not an indication of future problems. And, as always, we stand united with our brothers and sisters, in Las Cruces.
