EL PASO — Tens of thousands of El Pasoans and visitors are expected to converge on Sun Bowl Stadium Wednesday to bow their heads and celebrate Mass with Pope Francis, who, as the first Latin American pontiff, is embraced by Catholics in this predominantly Hispanic community as one of their own.

Taking place south of the Rio Grande in Ciudad Juárez, the Mass will be televised live at the stadium on the University of Texas at El Paso campus.
