Last week, the Pittsburgh Oratory of St Philip Neri announced that a priest of the oratory, Fr. David Abernethy, was leaving with the intention of joining the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh. Fr. David produced podcast and online materials concerning the Eastern Church Fathers as part of his ministry at the oratory.

Please pray for the Oratory as they lose a brother and pray for Fr. Abernethy for his discernment in transferring to the Archeparchy of Pittsburgh.
