On the Border


On Saturday, November 3, the Bishops of El Paso and Las Cruces joined with clergy, women and men religious, and lay people worshiping together on both sides of the US-Mexico border at the annual Border Mass. Friars Tom Smith and Charles McCarthy concelebrated the Mass and spent time in fellowship with the attendees.




The Mass is a reminder that the people of God are one, regardless of barriers -- political, cultural, or language. We pray for unity and healing, and for the suffering of those who seek a better life for their families.
