Asking for your prayers for one of our Metropolis clergy, Fr. George (not me!) who was just diagnosed with cancer, and for his family.  No idea of severity, prognosis, etc. for the time being - he is in otherwise great health and his spirits are good.

The clergy of the Metropolis will be serving the Paraklesis every weekday evening on a rotating schedule. 

Honored to be a part of that supplication next week.

Update: Fr. George (again, not me) has undergone 6 double-rounds of chemotherapy. It sounds like the medical consensus is that surgery would be more deleterious than helpful, and the chemo has had mixed success. They'll be going into "maintenance mode" and will be checking on him at least quarterly. Statistically life expectancy with this cancer is 2 years; but God only knows. Please pray for him and his family.
