Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I write with an update on the recovery to health of the Rt. Rev. E. Don Taylor following a stroke last month. Bp. Taylor is now in a local rehabilitation facility, endeavoring to regain his strength and abilities. It is a very slow process, but he is doing much better physically. Meanwhile, his speech and mental recognition are fine.

Because of the demands of his recovery, Bp. Taylor and his family continue to request privacy. They welcome your cards and letters, however, and give you this address where they are receiving mail: 195-04 90th Avenue, Jamaica, NY 11423.

Bp. Taylor's daughter Tara wishes to express how much your prayers have meant to him and his family in these past few weeks. "Believe me when I say we feel the prayers," she said. "The love has been overwhelming and is getting us through each day."

Bp. Taylor served as the Vicar Bishop for New York City from 1994 to 2009. After this ministry, he returned to his homeland of Jamaica to serve as Rector of the Church of St. Thomas the Apostle, more widely known as the Kingston Parish Church, in the Diocese of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.

Please continue to remember our brother in your prayers for healing, spiritual courage, and fortitude.

Faithfully yours,

The Rt. Rev. Andrew M. L. Dietsche
