St. Vincent Charity Medical Center to host 150th anniversary mass

St. Vincent Charity Medical Center concludes its yearlong 150th anniversary celebration with Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist Sunday, September 27th at 3 p.m. Mass is open to all and will be celebrated by the Most Reverend Richard G. Lennon, Bishop of Cleveland.

The event wraps up the hospital's anniversary year and honors its founders, the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine.

In that spirit, Pope Francis thanked the women religious of the United States on September 23 during an evening prayer service at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York, saying, “I especially would like to thank and express my esteem and gratitude to the religious women of the United States. What indeed, what would the church be without you? Women’s strength. Fighters with that spirit of courage which puts you on the front lines in the proclamation of the Gospel. To you, religious women, sisters and mothers of this people, I wish to say, thank you. I big thank you and to tell you that I love you very much."
St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
