Msgr. Torgerson in Good Condition, Despite Fall

Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019. Msgr. Torgerson suffered an upper femur fracture overnight, after tripping over an electric cord in his bedroom and falling. He is in good condition and awaiting reparative hip surgery scheduled for this early evening. He is in very good spirits and has the company of his brother priests and parish staff. He has been admitted at Providence Saint John's Health Center, but requests no visitors at this time. Following surgery, he is expected to be in recovery for at least five days. Msgr. Torgerson remains grateful for your prayers in this time of healing.

He will not likely preside at any liturgies for at least a week. Msgr. continues to express his deep thanksgiving to everyone for their continued prayer and warm wishes.
