Visitation turns 75

On February 18, Visitation Catholic Church will be celebrating its 75th year as a parish. The church, which opened in 1943, counts many of its parishioners as being members for decades. To celebrate the anniversary, the community is invited to attend a special mass on Sunday, February 18 at 10:30 a.m. with Archbishop Gomez.

Following the mass, the Visitation campus will host a celebration with music, food and games. Tours will be offered, and alumni are especially encouraged to attend for the chance to explore their old stomping grounds, see how things have changed and learn about plans for Visitation’s future.

“Westchester, thank you for making Visitation such a welcomed part of your community. Thank you for joining us in welcoming others, from newcomers to the neighborhood to travelers with layovers,” said Visitation’s Father Jim Forsen. “And thank you for letting us support you in your spirituality. We look forward to the next 75 years as a parish.”

Visitation Church is located at 6561 W. 88th St. in Westchester.
