After the Mass, a rendition of an art installation in honor of Emeritus Bishop Agustín A. Román was unveiled. Family members of the late Auxiliary Bishop were in attendance. Mgsr. Román served Mercy Hospital as Chaplain from 1968 to 1973; his oversight within Mercy helped shape our mission and further our commitment to the healing mission of Jesus on which Mercy Hospital was founded in 1950. Bishop Román is best remembered for his work in the construction of the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity located next to Mercy Hospital.
