The Sisters in Huntington

April 7, 2021 was a very special day for St. Joseph’s Hospital in Buckhannon, WV. Our Bishop Mark E. Brennan came to celebrate a 100th Anniversary Liturgy at Holy Rosary Catholic Church. We could not invite too many guests because of social distancing, but there was a good mix of parishioners and St. Joseph’s administration and employees.

 

Among the invited guests were President and CEO of WVU Health System, Albert Wright, President and CEO of United Hospital Center, Michael Tillman. Our Parish Administrator, Fr. Edward Tetteh, SVD, concelebrated with Bishop Mark Brennan. Rev. Mr. Rue Thompson, Deacon, assisted at the altar. Sr. Francesca had chosen the readings of the day, Wednesday of the octave of Easter. The reading from Acts 3:1-10 seemed to be so fitting for the occasion.

Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
