Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades blesses a new statue of Blessed Solanus Casey recently installed at St. Felix Catholic Center in Huntington. The outdoor blessing followed the celebration of a feast day Mass for the Capuchin friar on July 30.

Father Ron Rieder, OFM Cap., pastor emeritus of Ss. Peter & Paul in Huntington, gives the homily for the feast day Mass from the priests’ chairs due to his limited mobility, remembering his personal experiences with Blessed Solanus Casey. With Father Rieder, from left, are concelebrant Father Steve Colchin, main celebrant Father Tony Steinacker and concelebrant Father David Ruppert. — All photos by Joe Romie
