Farewell to Br. Ed Skutka, OFM

There are three fraternities in St. Katharine Drexel Region that are bonded to St. John the Baptist Province (OFM):

  • Holy Cross Fraternity
  • Sts. Cyril & Methodius Fraternity
  • St. Francis Fraternity (Easton)

When the six OFM provinces become one in mid-October as Our Lady of Guadalupe Province, there will be many changes of friars across locations.  One of these reassignments affected St. Francis Retreat House, as Br. Ed Skutka, OFM, left for Butler, NJ, after 53 years at Easton, PA.

As our region participated in many retreat weekends at Easton, we always enjoyed the hospitality, humor, and faithful presence of Br. Ed.  Attached is the provincial newsletter from St. John the Baptist with an article by Fr. Loren Connell, OFM, on page 5 about Br. Ed.  If you would like to send him a note, here is his address, effective August 11th:

Br. Edward Skutka, OFM
St. Anthony Friary
65 Bartholdi Avenue, Butler, New Jersey 07405

Let us give thanks to Br. Ed for his long and faithful service, and pray for joyful fraternity among the friars in residence at Butler!
