On May 26th a lot of things changed for Fr. Stephen Huffstetter, SCJ. He began the day as provincial superior of the US Province and ended it as a member of the General Council in Rome. It meant not only a new job, but a new country and a new language. A few weeks later Fr. Steve returned to the United States to take some vacation time with family, pack, and attend to the many details of moving to another country. He also sat down for a few minutes for a little Q&A on his new role and ministry.
