Bishop Bernard W. Schmitt, RIP

Today our Diocese learned that +Bernard W. Schmitt, Bishop of Wheeling-Charleston from 1989-2004 passed away early this morning, about an hour after the Assumption of our Lady, and one day shy of his 83rd birthday. 

The Diocesan website has an obituary posted here.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.  And may his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.
