6th Annual Dei Gratia Award Recipient Announced

August 18, 2021

Diocese of El Paso Clergy and Religious will be honored as the 2021 recipients of the Catholic Foundation's Dei Gratia Award for their extraordinary and heroic ministry during the pandemic.

They have been unrelenting in their commitment and service to others during COVID-19, and continue to accompany us during these still uncertain times.

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 our Catholic community, and dedication to being good stewards of God’s grace.

The Dei Gratia Award will be presented to Bishop Mark Seitz during the virtual 15th Annual Foundation of Faith Event: Ignite Your Hearts on Thursday, September 23 at The Manor at Ten Eleven.

Priests, deacons, and men and women religious, practiced heroic ministry during the pandemic, and went out of their way to respond to God’s call to “Ignite Your Hearts”. They pray with us, bless us, teach us, counsel us, and accompany us. Some even gave their lives.

Help us celebrate the Diocese of El Paso Clergy and Religious with your participation at the 15th Annual Foundation of Faith Event.

The virtual event is set for Thursday September 23, 2021 at 7pm and will be live streamed on YouTube. Registrations for the virtual experience are $75 per household and include a surprise swag bag and your code to "enter". The in-person VIP experience is for sponsors of $1,000 and up and begins at 5:30pm with cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres.
