The Most Rev. Mark Seitz, D.D., Bishop of El Paso, is pleased to announce new pastoral assignments for various clergy serving the Catholic Diocese of El Paso.

San Francisco Xavier Parish
(South Central El Paso)
Priests from the religious community of the Augustinians of the Assumption will begin serving the Diocese for the first time, and will assume pastoral leadership of San Francisco Xavier Parish in South Central El Paso. The parish will house three priests of the Order, who will serve this parish as well as focusing their pastoral attention on the increasing needs of migrant refugees along the El Paso-Juárez border. Three priests will be assigned to the parish: the Pastor, Fr. Peter Precourt, AA; Fr. Ron Sibugan, AA; and a third Augustinian of the Assumption priest to be announced.

“I trust that the assignment of the Augustinians of the Assumption to St. Francis Xavier will invigorate this wonderful parish community and also strengthen all of our service to migrant refugees along the U.S.-Mexico Border,” Bishop Seitz said. “It is in keeping with Pope Francis’ wishes to be a Church for all God’s people with special attention to those brothers and sisters on the peripheries of society,” he added.

The Order of the Augustinians of the Assumption was founded in 1845 in Nimes, France, by Venerable Emmanual d’Alzon. The order’s provincial office in the United States is located in Brighton, Massachusetts.
