The announcement was made at noon, Vatican time, which is 4 a.m. local time.  The El Paso diocese will have a news conference about the new bishop at 10 o’clock this morning.

Seitz has been auxiliary bishop and Vicar General of the Diocese of Dallas since 2010 and has spent much of his time in Texas after being ordained a priest.

Armando Ochoa was the former Bishop of El Paso for 15 years before he was reassigned to the Diocese of Fresno in Dec. 2011.

There are over 656 thousand Catholics in El Paso out of a total population of 811 thousand.

There are 55 parishes, 20 missions, and 17 ministries in the El Paso area.

There is no word on when Bishop Seitz will be coming to El Paso.
