Prayers for Fr. Peter Gillquist [updated]

From email:

Fr. Peter’s Gillquist’s
cancer has metastasized and is more extensive than first indicated. He
should be discharged today to go home under hospice care. They are now
thinking he has a few weeks. Please keep Fr. Peter, his wife [Kh.] Marilyn and
his family in your prayers.

In Christ, Fr James Bernstein, Dean

  1. Lord have mercy…I had no idea. I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of years ago. He had a big part in starting our mission church and his son is my priest's best friend. 😦
