FATHER'S MESSAGE

March 13, 2016

Dear Parish Family,

On June 22, 2016, I will begin a new assignment as Pastor of St. Elizabeth Seton in Naperville. It has been an honor to serve as your Pastor for the past six years, and I feel blessed in so many ways to have had this opportunity to be with all of you. 

  I am happy to announce that Bishop Conlon has assigned the next Pastor of Visitation Parish. Our Next Pastor will be Fr. Greg Skowron. He will begin his assignment as Pastor of Visitation on June 22, 2016. Currently Fr. Greg Skowron is Pastor of St. Anthony Church in Frankfort.

Fr. Greg Skowron was born in Poland on September 17, 1963, and ordained a Priest in 1989. After serving a parish in Poland for two years, he felt called to serve in the missions in the Philippines. To prepare, he studied English for one year, and then left for the Philippines where he served in the missions for some time. On November 3, 2001, Fr. Skowron came to the United States and began to serve in the Diocese of Joliet. While seeking Incarnation into the Diocese, Fr. Skowron was assigned to assist the Pastor of St. Andrew Parish in Romeoville, and then of St. Mary Parish in West Chicago. After being Incarnated into the Diocese of Joliet, Father was named Pastor of St. Anthony in Frankfort where he has served since June of 2008.

Transitions have become a part of Priestly ministry and Parish life. They allow for new gifts to be brought forward for both the community and for the priest. New insights are found, and the grace of God oversees it all. Still, transitions and changes are not easy, so please pray for God’s care to be upon both the priests and the communities who will be receiving new leadership this June.

God Bless,

Fr. Scott Huggins

Follow the Pilgrimage
On Monday Fr. Santos Castillo and I along with 43 other
pilgrims, some from our own parish, will be departing for the
Holy Land. Please keep us in prayer as we travel to the
Holy sites of the Bible, and the Land where Jesus ministered
to the world for all time. I will be keeping you in
prayer as well. Nothing is ever guaranteed regarding my
ability to connect to the internet while oversees. Still, I
hope that it will be possible for me to create an At Home
Pilgrimage Site for all of you to visit so you can virtually
join me on this Pilgrimage. Check out the website
www.VisitationCatholicChurch.com. (Please note that
this is a different address then our main parish website.) I
am hopeful that I will be able to upload stories, prayers,
and photos from our journey.
 God bless,
 Fr. Scott Huggins
