Please pray for:
- Presvytera Daphne Barbas (Fr. Ted, Chancellor of Boston Metropolis) in your prayers. She had a massive stroke on Monday, while vacationing in Mytilini with her husband. She had emergency surgery at the Mytilini hospital to drain the blood from her brain and relieve the pressure. She's now in an induced coma in order to give her body rest. Presvytera Daphne and her siblings flew out immediately to be with her and their father. The doctors have let them know that it is a very serious situation and that they should be prepared for the worst. They are frustrated by the extremely limited visitation schedules the Greek hospitals are enforcing after flying so far to be by their mother's side. Please keep them all in your prayers (posted August 25, 2017).
- Please continue to pray for Mildred, the daughter of Fr. David and Diana Eynon, of Annunciation Church, Decatur, IL. Here is a link to an article about her and how her school is raising money to help with medical expenses: http://m.herald-review.com/news/decatur-s-daughter/article_04bebe1f-81c9-58d2-a9b4-2ee77b89cdf6.html?mobile_touch=true
- Please continue to pray for Fr. Anthony Demetri, of Camp Hill, PA, who sustained a brain injury on December 11, 2008. You can follow his progress by visiting http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/franthonydemetri. His presvytera, Eleni, wrote on November 18, 2015: "Fr. Anthony is having difficulty walking. His right leg is very weak. He is being admitted overnight for testing to make sure there has been no neurological damage that is causing the problem with his weakness on the right side. He will be receiving physical and occupational therapy and if necessary be referred for sub acute therapy to make him stronger. I will know more after all the testing has been done and will keep you up to date. Our love and prayers go out to Fr. Anthony and Eleni as tests are done and they await the results.
