For Fr. Peter Gillquist...

The Very Rev. Fr. Peter E. Gillquist has been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic melanoma. Fr. Peter survived a diagnosis of stage 3 melanoma in 1999 and another bout in 2010. He, Kh. Marilyn, and family await test results to determine treatment options in the management of this aggressive cancer."

May the Holy Unmercenary Physicians, Cosmas and Damian, give wisdom to Father Peter's doctors, and may the Lord, the Great Physician, look with love and kindness on Father Peter, bringing peace to him and spare him from pain and discomfort. May Khouria Marilyn and all of his family be comforted in their love for him, knowing that, as he loves God, God too loves him.

The latest update from the parish website:

Quote
Fr. Peter is sleeping more and more each day. He will be transferred to a hospice facility this afternoon, where his family will continue to participate in his care and comfort management, together with a 24-hour nursing staff. Your continued prayers for a peaceful journey are appreciated more than you know.

Continued prayers for Father Peter as he draws near the end of his mortal journey.

Praying.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
