EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The Diocese of El Paso and the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso has set up a fund to help repair a historic statute at St. Patrick’s Cathedral that was damaged on Tuesday when the church was vandalized.
In a Facebook post, the Diocese said the yet-to-be-named fund will also be used for security and renovations of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
A future announcement to come within the week will include more details about the fund.
