President Boyd K. Packer, president of the LDS Church's Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, was released from a Massachusetts hospital today following a brief fainting spell Sunday.

"President Packer is feeling better," LDS Church spokesman Scott Trotter. "He is flying home . . . and is grateful for the expressions of concern for his well-being."

President Packer, 86, collapsed Sunday afternoon following rededication services for the Longfellow Park meetinghouse in Cambridge, Mass. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he stayed overnight for observation.
