The Sisters in Huntington
On Sunday, August 15, 2021, we celebrated the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary at 11:00am in our Medical Center Chapel. This was the Jubilee Mass for three of our Sisters. They were Sr. Elisabeth Heptner and Sr. Diane Bushee who celebrated their 65th. Jubilee and, Sr. Elizabeth Monsanto who celebrated her 60th. Jubilee.
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.
