Holy Rosary Parish in Buckhannon Will Honor St. Joseph

BUCKHANNON—For the Year of St. Joseph, Holy Rosary Parish in Buckhannon had a rock garden planted to honor this beloved saint next to the front outdoor entrance to Marist Hall. “We invite every family to place a large stone in the rock garden,” parish officials said. “You may have one on your property. If you don’t have one, ask your neighbor or just bring a medium sized one.” Parishioners are encouraged do this before Dec. 8 as the parish hopes to have a special dedication and blessing near that time. The parish also plans to place a memorial stone in front of the scarlet maple. The inscription on the memorial will read: “ST. JOSEPH, PATRON OF FATHERS, PRAY FOR US.” “St. Joseph is the patron of many people and institutions. We will honor the many fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers of our parish with our wording,” parish officials said. “We hope you will participate.”
