Bishop Rhoades to celebrate Mass at St. Felix Catholic Center

Bishop Kevin Rhoades will celebrate a Mass for the Sick on Saturday, Aug. 19, at St. Felix Catholic Center, in Huntington.

The Mass begins at 1 p.m. and will be preceded by recitation of the rosary at 12:30 p.m.

The Mass is sponsored by the group Praying with Father Solanus, named in honor of Rev. Solanus Casey. Casey, whose intercession is credited with many apparently miraculous cures, spent 10 years of his life at St. Felix Friary, in Huntington. The former friary is now the home of St. Felix Catholic Center.

Casey died in 1957 and was approved for beatification by Pope Francis in May.

Tours of St. Felix Catholic Center, including the bedroom used by Casey when he lived there from 1946 to 1956, will be available after the Masses. Assistance will be provided for those with handicaps or who use wheelchairs.
