His Excellency, Bishop Mark E. Brennan

I welcome you to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart!  This beautiful church serves as my co-cathedral in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, which embraces the entire State of West Virginia. If you are now living in Charleston, I invite you to become an active member of the Sacred Heart parish community.  You will have something to offer your fellow parishioners and they will have much to offer you!  May God bless you and all your loved ones and may we together rejoice in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Very Reverend Fr. Donald X. Higgs
