After 17 Month Wait Pope Francis Appoints Aux Bishop Mark Seitz Bishop of El Paso

The Diocese of El Paso finally has a Bishop being without one since late 2011. This morning the news came from Rome that Pope Francis  appointed  Auxiliary Bishop Mark Seitz of Dallas, 59, as bishop of El Paso, Texas .

The delay on getting a Bishop appointed to such a important and Catholic heavy area that is  the Diocese of El Paso has been of much talk. Rocco Palmo in his post gets into those issues and also the fact that is Anglo appointment to a very heavy Latino Diocese.  See Border Crossed – After 17 Month Wait, Pope Taps Dallas' Seitz for El Paso
