St. Josaphat is remembering the two parish priests who have lived in the rectory for quite some time! Both are leaving and starting new jobs in different areas. We thank them for their time and helping us, as parishioners, strengthen our faith in Jesus.
Fr. Simon
Fr. Simon recently graduated Loyola University of Chicago with a Masters of Arts in Spirituality. He returned to South Korea to become the spiritual director at the seminary in Seoul where he worked at prior to him coming to America. He is thankful for all the kind parishioners that spoke with him and will try and return as soon as possible because he truly loved the community at St. Josaphat Parish. 
Fr. Bart
Fr. Bart Winters is transferring to St. Edwards to become the Associate Pastor there. He will fondly remember the wonderful times that he spent in with the Parish community and hopes to return to St. Josaphat whenever possible. He thanks the community for their kindness and generosity.
