Join Auxiliary Bishop George A. Sheltz at a public Mass of Thanksgiving tonight at Christ the Redeemer Church, 11507 Huffmeister Road in Houston. The Mass begins at 7 p.m. at the parish, where Bishop Sheltz had once served as pastor.

The newly ordained bishop will also be celebrating other public Masses in June. The public is welcome to attend the following Masses with Bishop Sheltz at these parishes.

  • June 5 at 7 p.m. at Holy Family Parish, 34th and Ave. K in Galveston.
Bishop Sheltz spent 36 of his 40-plus years as a parish priest at Catholic churches around the Archdiocese and was educated at Annunciation Catholic School, St. Thomas High School, the University of St. Thomas and St. Mary's Seminary – all located in Houston. He was ordained a bishop May 2 at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in downtown Houston.
