Of your charity . . .

. . . please pray for Father Joseph O'Keefe, S.J., who was named in January as the next president of Saint Joseph's University but has now been forced to withdraw his acceptance of the post after a routine medical exam unexpectedly revealed serious cardiovascular problems that require immediate and sustained treatment. Father O'Keefe received a very enthusiastic reception from the campus community when he was announced as the 27th President of Saint Joseph's, so his withdrawal is a shock and a serious blow to many on Hawk Hill. I hope that you will join me in praying for Father O'Keefe's health and consolation, but please also pray for all of us at SJU in a time of considerable uncertainty. AMDG.
