EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso Bishop Mark Seitz, County Judge Ricardo Samaniego, Mayor Dee Margo and Pastor Michael Grady - a national advocate for racial justice and father of one of the survivors of the Aug. 3 tragedy - spoke about Sunday's upcoming interfaith community healing service being held at Ascarate Park one year after the massacre.

On the eve of the shooting anniversary, Bishop Seitz and other religious leaders will lead a solemn and prayerful service of remembrance and healing that will take place with the survivors and the families of the victims.

The service is being held in conjunction with the groundbreaking of El Paso County’s Community Healing Garden.

The news conference previewing the event, which was held Saturday morning outside St. Raphael Catholic Church, can be viewed in its entirety in the video player above.

The service entitled "Together we remember, together we heal" is set for Sunday at 7 p.m.

Because of the pandemic, the service is not open to the public - but rather will be broadcast LIVE on KVIA's El Paso-Las Cruces CW channel and streamed here on KVIA.com.

    1. Hey moron you don’t qualify for vote by mail in Texas. The majority of Texans will be voting for President Trump and Senator John Cornyn. Your in person vote will go into the trash can. TRUMP 2020!

  1. Mark you know how to poke the trolls to get them all upset. Madmike and fero2a always fall for it. Anyway this article is not about the trolls but instead honoring all the victims and their families. I still believe trump’s rhetoric contributed to this tragedy. We can not have another 4 years of the orange idiot else there will be no country left. Putin’s plan has been working perfectly in destroying this country because he knows idiots like fero2a, madmike and nadodave are easily manipulated by their racists views. #prayforAmerica

    1. I don’t pray, but I do have hopes that we will be able to restore our nation’s greatness after this terrible mistake we all made in 2016. Like Sleepy Joe says, “this election is about restoring the soul of America”.

  3. And you’re right about us falling right into Putin’s scheme. All he had to do was wait for a complete fool to be elected and then he could manipulate him and guide the division. Its sure worked and the idiot orange buffoon is being played like a fiddle just like John Bolton said.
