The Numbers Are In!

December 12, 2019

The Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso is pleased to announce the results of the 2019 Mass Attendance Count.

In order to have a more accurate account of Mass attendance, Bishop Mark Seitz asked all parishes, missions, seminaries, and convents to conduct the 2019 Mass Attendance Count twice in the month of October. The count was conducted during the weekends of October 12 & 13 and 19 & 20.

Stewardship Coordinator Karina Sandoval was responsible for receiving and averaging both of the weekend counts, which included the English, Spanish, Bilingual, Latin and Filipino Masses.

The results are as follows:
Weekend of October 12 & 13 — 64,172 attendees
Weekend of October 19 & 20 — 66,018 attendees
Average number of attendees for both weekends — 65,097

The Foundation will continue to provide resources for parishes based on this year’s Mass attendance count. For more information on the 2019 Mass Attendance Count results, please contact Karina Sandoval at 915-872-8412 or
