Presiding Bishop and Primate thanks Episcopalians for their prayers
Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry wishes to thank all Episcopalians and others for the generous outpouring of prayer and well wishes in response to his Dec. 6 announcement that he will be undergoing surgery.

That surgery, originally scheduled for Dec. 7, is now scheduled for Dec. 8.  The postponement is to allow some aspirin he took on Dec. 6 the time needed to clear his system.

Prayers for our Presiding Bishop and Primate
Prayers for healing are asked for Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry.

The Presiding Bishop’s Office has announced that Presiding Bishop Curry was taken to a hospital Dec. 6 after a visitation to Bruton Parish Church in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. The Presiding Bishop subsequently was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma, and was transferred to a medical center in Richmond for treatment. A full recovery is expected.
