Citing the need for the Catholic Church to “lead by example” and to act responsibly to protect others during the coronavirus pandemic, Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso, Texas, has said that all Church employees and ministry volunteers must be vaccinated.
“Those who serve the Catholic community have, by the nature of their service, close interaction with many others,” Bishop Seitz said in an Aug. 6 message to the Catholics of his diocese. “The Church has a responsibility to do all in its power to keep others safe. I could not live with myself if I did not do all in my power to assure that the Church’s ministry does not place others at risk.”
“For the sake our brothers and sisters, I am requiring all those who are employed by the Church and all those who perform Church ministries including, but not limited to, catechists and Eucharistic ministers to be vaccinated,” the bishop wrote.
Those who cannot be vaccinated due to “particular health issues” may seek an exemption, he said.
