This year, the Catholic Foundation will present Bishop Mark with the Dei Gratia Award honoring the Diocese of El Paso Clergy and Religious for their heroic ministry during the pandemic.
The Dei Gratia Award, Latin for “By the Grace of God”, recognizes an individual, couple, or organization for their servant leadership, outstanding contribution to the Diocese of El Paso and the Catholic community, and their dedication to being good stewards of God’s grace.
