Lutheran bishop back at work

By on October 1, 2002

Raymond Schultz, 62, national bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), was released from hospital in early September and allowed to resume limited duties following a nuclear stress test to measure blood flow to the heart.

A news release said results of an angiogram showed that Bishop Schultz had a secondary artery entirely blocked and a partly blocked primary artery.

However, further tests revealed that no surgery or intervention is needed. His doctor has approved a gradual easing back into his duties. He is expected to be back at work full-time by mid-October.

Bishop Schultz succeeded ELCIC national bishop Telmor Sartison.
