Howell, NJ: Announcement from the Diocesan Office on the health of Metropolitan Hilarion


Reverend Fathers,
Dear brothers and sisters,


On Monday, March 14, the First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, His Eminence Hilarion, Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York, successfully underwent knee-replacement surgery. The operation was performed in Australia.


The First Hierarch made known today that his doctors are happy with the results of the operation, and that he has already begun physiotherapy. His Eminence thanked all of his spiritual children for their concern and prayers. We ask that all rectors continue commemorating Vladyka during the divine services in churches throughout the Eastern American Diocese.


With love in Christ,

Archpriest Serge Lukianov
Diocesan Secretary

Media Office of the Eastern American Diocese
