A Prayer Request for Tony and Update From the Campolo Family

Dear Friends,

On the evening of June 20 our father, Tony Campolo, had a stroke that partially paralyzed the left side of his face and body. Since then he has been recovering and working on rehabilitation on the ground floor of the Beaumont Health Center, while his wife Peggy – who is prohibited from entering his room due to COVID19 – patiently sits outside his window for most of each day, talking with him and overseeing his care.

Obviously this is a difficult situation for everyone, but we are grateful that both our parents’ minds, spirits and determination to serve are still strong, and we are genuinely optimistic about their prospects for getting their lives back on track.

In the meantime, rather than calling either one directly, the best way to support and encourage Tony and Peggy is to send cards and emails that let them know you love them, are praying for them, and don’t expect a reply.

Thank you so much for your kindness and concern. Rest assured, we will keep you posted via Tony’s website,

You can send a note of encouragement or card to Tony by email at or to Eastern University, 1300 Eagle Road, St. Davids, PA 19087.


Bart Campolo and Lisa Goodheart
