Special Mass Sunday For Mother Marianne Cope
One of the more noteworthy recent stories in the Utica-Rome area is the sainthood of Mother Marianne Cope, a leading religious figure in central New York during the 1800s. A special mass honoring her will be held this Sunday at the St. Elizabeth Medical Center Chapel in Utica.
Here are the details from our sister station, WIBX:
“Saint Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica is hosting a special Mass in honor of Saint Marianne Cope’s canonization. The Mass will be held this Sunday at noon in the Medical Center’s Chapel.
Bob Schofield, Chief Operating Officer for the hospital, says Saint Marianne’s dedication to health and well-being were the basis for her remarkable work. Prior to starting her religious life in 1862, Saint Marianne Cope was a resident of West Utica, attending Saint Joseph-Saint Patrick Church.
Pope Benedict the 16th will canonize Saint Marianne Cope on Sunday at the Vatican in Rome.”
