Bishop Tamayo offers prayers for Notre Dame Cathedral

Monday, April 15, 2019

As the Diocese of Laredo undergoes the preservation and restoration of San Agustín Cathedral, we are most conscious that although our church buildings are made of mortar and stone, they symbolize the faith of a community and bring God’s blessing upon the people. 

The Diocese of Laredo, along with millions around the world, lament the fire at the historic and beloved Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris. As we witness this tragic event from afar, we pray for the people of France and the Archbishop of Paris as they experience this devastating event. 

We also offer prayers for protection and blessings upon the first responders and the brave firefighters battling the horrific flames. May the people of France be assured of God’s love and blessings as they endure this difficult moment. 

Most Reverend James A. Tamayo
Bishop
