Providence Mt. St. Vincent will hold a celebration in naming of William Pigott Chapel April 26

Providence Mount St. Vincent is inviting the public to attend a mass to celebrate the naming of its chapel in honor of William Pigott's visionary commitment, legacy of faith, service and sacrificial giving.

The mass will begin at 11 a.m. on April 26, 2015 in the chapel at Providence Mount St. Vincent, 4831 35th Ave. SW, Seattle. The Very Reverend Paul Magnano will preside. The event will honor William Pigott and Ann P. Wyckoff, long-time supporters of Providence Mount St. Vincent. "It's an honor to continue my grandfather's legacy," Wyckoff said about naming the William Pigott Chapel in honor of her grandfather.

In 1924, Pigott and five other lead donors partnered with the Sisters of Providence to raise the needed funds to build St. Vincent Home for the Aged, today called Providence Mount St. Vincent. Together they held the vision that a just society must plan for and provide care for its elders. The building was dedicated on April 26, 1924.
