Rigali Delays Prostate Cancer Surgery

St. Louis, Mo – St. Louis Archbishop Justin Rigali is delaying this week's scheduled treatment for prostate cancer because he has shingles. Rigali says he's in good spirits, and adds the new infection has to be treated before undergoing any surgery.

Rigali announced last week he'd have his prostate removed. At that time, he said he hoped to return to a full schedule by Easter.
