February 20th Update on Fr. John's Health
Fr. John was seen by Dr. Kinsella yesterday. She explained the CAT-scan results. Fr. John has 3 fractures of the right radius. Depending on x-ray results next Monday, it will be determined whether wrist surgery will be needed. A new hard cast was applied till next Monday's appointment.
Pray that the fractures will heal without surgery.
Our Archimandrite, Fr. John, is battling several health issues. You can imagine how difficult it will be for a priest not being able to use his right hand for an extensive amount of time.

Services at Resurrection Church and Skete continue as scheduled, including liturgies on Sundays at 9 am.
