Prayers for Bishop Morlino after suffering “cardiac event”
Statement on Bishop Robert C. Morlino’s Health; Request for Prayers
On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Bishop Robert Morlino was undergoing planned medical tests and had a cardiac event. Thankfully, he was in precisely the right place for such an event to occur and the healthcare professionals reacted expertly. At present, Bishop Morlino is resting and the doctors continue in their diagnostic and prognostic work. Per the Bishop’s preference, the decision was made not to trouble people for Thanksgiving Day, but at this time it is appropriate to notify the faithful and all people of good will, and to request your prayers. The Bishop is also very grateful to his healthcare professionals for their dedicated service.
