Diocesan News

On behalf of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Laredo, I would like to inform you on the humanitarian crisis we are facing on our border, especially since last Friday, May 10, 2019. Catholic Charities is leading this humanitarian crisis. 

Calvary Catholic Cemetery cordially invites you to our Memorial Day Mass with special recognition to Laredoans who died during the Vietnam war.

The Most Reverend James A. Tamayo, D.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Laredo, will celebrate the Boy Scout Award Mass and recognize the achievements of 49 youth and 3 adult leaders on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 10:00 A.M. in historic San Agustín Cathedral, (Santa Monica Hall, temporary location, due to renovations).

We have been notified by several parishioners and priests of an active email and text scam targeting pastors and parishioners. In the fraudulent emails and texts, the pastor, mentioned by name, asks for donations of gift cards. Please be aware that this is a scam, and do not respond. The Diocese of Laredo and our priests will not solicit donations in this way.

Please spread the word.
