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.
