Metropolitan JOHN in Stable Condition in Regina Hospital
Date: May 1, 2009

Dear Brothers and Sisters In Christ!

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE CONSISTORY

The Office of the Consistory of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada announces that its Primate, His Eminence Metropolitan JOHN, by the Grace of God Archbishop of Winnipeg and the Central Eparchy, took ill yesterday (April 29, 2009) in Yorkton, Saskatchewan while attending a meeting of the Eparchial Council of the Central Eparchy. After being examined by a physician in the local hospital there, it was decided to transport His Eminence by ambulance to Regina, Saskatchewan. This morning (April 30, 2009) His Eminence underwent a serious surgery but a full recovery is expected.

We ask that all of our faithful pray for a successful conclusion to His Eminence's medical procedure and for his full recovery. We ask that all clergy include a special petition for Metropolitan JOHN's health at this Sunday's Divine Liturgy.

Update: As of May 1, 2009 reports are that the surgeons were able to achieve what they had wanted to with the surgery. It appears that His Eminence will be kept in the hospital at least for a week. We thank everyone for their prayers and ask you to continue to pray for the health of our dear Metropolitan JOHN.

Anyone wishing to send a card or flowers to Metropolitan JOHN can send it to the Regina General Hospital, 1440 - 14th Avenue Regina, SK S4P 0W5.

The unworthy hierodeacon, Vasyl

Lord, have mercy on your servant!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
