Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli, Roman Catholic Diocese of Paterson, addressed employees and visitors during the morning Mass at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey and distributed ashes in commemoration of Ash Wednesday 2014. 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, Mayra Rodriguez, a resident of Clifton, was very thankful that Bishop Serratelli had stopped by to visit and pray for her upcoming surgery and speedy recovery.
