We are saddened to announce that the Rev. Canon Rudy van der Hiel suffered a massive heart attack last Monday (October 14th) in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.  He is currently stabilized and is in Southern Pennsylvania Westchester Community Hospital.  His wife, Lynne, and his children Roxanne, Becky, Amy, Marijke, and Kristen are with him.

Canon Rudy is the Honourary Assistant at St. Stephen’s Parish (Muskoka Deanery) and former Incumbent at the Parish of Muskoka Lakes.

We ask you to uphold in prayer Rudy, Lynne, their children and their families as they support one another.  We pray for wisdom and compassion for Rudy’s health care team.

“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved; for you are my praise”
