St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey, welcomed Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli on Ash Wednesday 2013 as he addressed employees and visitors during the morning Mass and distributed ashes. After Mass, Bishop Serratelli took time to meet and greet those in attendance and later visited some of the many patients being cared for at St. Joseph’s. One such patient, Josephine Lindsey of Woodland Park, was very thankful that Bishop Serratelli had stopped by to visit and pray for her speedy recovery.
