Forgive the lack of updates; just a brief note to ask any and all to lift up Leo DuMoulin and his parents Justin and Anna, who attended seminary with us and graduated after our first year here. Leo was born with hydrocephalus and underwent surgery yesterday to correct massive swelling in his head present since birth (months ago). He has experienced brain development that no doctor had predicted he would see and, though the surgery was a success, there is quite a bit of recovery to go.
Also, Hierodeacon Kilian, a student here, is to be ordained to the holy priesthood in St. Nicholas Cathedral (DC) at the hands of Metropolitan JONAH today. Please keep all these, and, as always, us, in your prayers.
