A Message from Arthur

Every beginning has an end. Today, I formally announce that it is my last day of internship here at St. Josaphat. I have mixed emotions right now. I feel sad because I have to say goodbye for now, and at the same time I am happy because I move forward to my new assignment. In June, I will start working at Illinois Masonic Medical Center as a chaplain-intern for my CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education). St. Josaphat is still my "Teaching Parish" until I get ordained to the priesthood in May 2020. From time to time you will still see me at the parish, especially on some Sundays to help out. I would like to thank all of you for being part of my internship experience. Please keep me in your prayers as I pray for all of you. God Bless!
