Brazos Valley Welcomes New Bishop Joe Vasquez

By  | 

Area Catholics will get a chance to meet and greet the new Diocese of Austin Bishop Joe Vasquez on Monday night.

Bishop Vasquez will celebrate a Mass of Welcome at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Northgate at 7:00 p.m. A reception will follow so Bishop Vasquez can meet and greet his new Aggie Catholics.

Pope Benedict XVI recently appointed Bishop Joe Vasquez. Vasquez was Auxiliary Bishop of Galveston-Houston prior to this latest appointment.

The Austin Diocese serves over a half million Catholics. Much of the Brazos Valley falls under the Austin Diocese. Those numbers are projected to double over the next 20 years.
