A special mass and blessing celebrated the newly renovated St. Anthony Hospital Chapel.
Tom and Judy Love made a generous donation to St. Anthony Foundation to renovate the 42 year-old chapel in honor of Archbishop Emeritus Eusebius J. Beltran. The renovation included many updates, including the addition of a stained glass window, almost a century old, of Saint Anthony. The beautiful stained glass window was added to the chapel entry visible from the hospital lobby.
Built in 1973, with over 27,000 visitors a year, the chapel has brought hope and comfort to many over the years. “The chapel is a place of refuge and worship for patients, family members, staff and physicians,” said Karen Green, Director of Pastoral Services. “The very spirit of the chapel brings consolation and strength to people of all faiths,” she added.
“We are truly appreciative of the generous donation made by the Love family. With their kind gift we were able to enhance the St. Anthony chapel resulting in a lovely place of worship, where our patients, guests, and staff can find peace and comfort,” said Tammy Powell, President of St. Anthony Hospital.
