Father Francis J. Kuster

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, or cool one pain ... I shall not live in vain. Emily Dickinson

Father Kuster was once the curate at St. Joseph, in Chester was in demand as a speaker at war bond rallies across the state. St. Joseph’s population had so greatly increased that in 1929, under the direction of Father Francis Kuster, the church building was enlarged.  The length of the church was increased to 100 feet and the width at the eastern end to 48 feet.  The peak of the roof was lowered and oil heat was installed.  This addition was built by Albert Anderson of Killingworth, a friend of Father Kuster’s.
