Dear Sisters and Brothers,
During this season of Lent and preparation for Easter, I am aware that the community has been missing having our dear Fr. Jim McGee with us at Saturday evening Masses. Hence, I’d like to give you an update on his health.
Fr. Jim was having a difficult time in January and early February at his home at Atria Walnut Creek. He wasn't able to sleep and was anxious and agitated. Carolyn Steele, the Health Manager of Retired Priests of the Diocese of Oakland helped us to transition him.
He spent about 9 days at John Muir having his medications adjusted. He was finally able to be moved to a new home that has the ability to give him medications on an as needed basis. He is slowly making the adjustment and is feeling safer and calmer. The Diocese has provided him 24 hour people to be with him so that he can feel secure. He has been doing better and is very appreciative of the love and prayers that he is receiving from the community.
Fr. Jim is not allowed visitors at this time, but you can send cards to him through our parish office and above all continue to hold him in your prayers.
May God bless Fr. Jim as he begins this new phase of his life.
United with you in praying for Fr. Jim,
Fr. William Rosario
