Tuesday, 19 November 2013 17:25

             Recent news stories in the print media and on television and radio have reported on the condition of Father Stephen Popovich, pastor of St. Paul Parish in New Middletown, who was seriously injured in a car accident. Some of the information has come from sources who are not authorized to speak about his condition.

            As of today, Father Popovich is at St. Elizabeth Hospital and remains in intensive care. He is alert, oriented, and joking. He is receiving physical and occupational therapy. His upper extremities are functioning. Doctors are still testing as to why he has no lower extremity movement.

            Only information from Father John Jerek, Vicar for Clergy, or Father Nicholas Shori, former pastor at St. Paul who has returned to assist the parish at this time, should be considered accurate information.

            Out of respect for Father Popovich there is no visiting, but continued prayers are requested for him.

            Contact Father Jerek or Father Shori at 330-744-8451.
