Mass on the Border, an event that celebrated Catholic mass between two countries, two languages and three cultures, including El Paso, Las Cruces and Ciudad Juárez took place Saturday, Nov. 2.  

El Paso Bishop Mark Seitz, Las Cruces Bishop Peter Baldacchino and Ciudad Juarez Bishop José Guadalupe Torres Campos held mass on the banks of the Rio Grande, with a small bridge built in the middle for the bishops and priests present to meet 

This mass was meant to symbolize the unity and coming together of different people from various cultures with the notion that religious beliefs can be celebrated without borders or walls. 

This is the second annual Mass on the Border event.
