The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced on Tuesday, May 23 that President Thomas S. Monson will no longer attend his regular meetings held at the Church Office Building due to limitations from his advanced age, according to Mormon Newsroom.

The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will continue to function without interruption. According to Mormon Newsroom, the 89-year-old prophet will continue to communicate “with his counselors on matters as needed” even though he will not be regularly attending his meetings.

President Monson’s declining health was recently reported worldwide as he was admitted to the hospital in April 2017 after the Church’s 187th Annual General Conference.
