Cardinal DiNardo on the death of Retired Aux. Bishop Rizzotto

January 17, 2021

With sadness I announce that the Most Reverend Vincent M. Rizzotto, Retired Auxiliary Bishop of Galveston-Houston, died of natural causes early this morning.  He was 89 years old.

I express my deepest sympathy to Bishop Rizzotto’s family and friends, and to his brother priests in Galveston-Houston.

Bishop Rizzotto was an exemplary priest and a holy bishop.

Funeral arrangements are pending. May we be one in Christ as we pray for the joyful repose of the soul of the Most Reverend Vincent M. Rizzotto.
