Family Visit from Afar

Father Hyginus Agu, parochial vicar at St. Andrew Parish in Bridgeport and a chaplain at Bridgeport Hospital, never expected a visit from his parents. Serving in this diocese for eight years now, Father Agu is originally from Nigeria and his father is over 90 years old.

His parents were determined to see their newest grandchild, born to his sister who lives in Chicago. Arriving there in winter, they were thrilled to see snow for the first time. After that visit they came to St. Andrew’s, where they had the opportunity to experience springtime in Connecticut and enjoyed meeting Bishop Frank Caggiano. Father Agu accompanied his parents on their return to Nigeria, where he will take the opportunity to visit his extended family.
