Non-Orthodox Mother Churching Infant?
« on: July 22, 2008, 12:01:30 PM »
Given the recent discussion on Infant Dedication where the Infant is considered a cathecumen from time of Churching until time of Baptism, does the same hold true for a non-Orthodox Mother who Churches an Infant in the Orthodox Church?

Mods, please move elsewhere if appropriate.   :)

How about Yes or No or Ask your Priest?  I believe the answer is also Yes.   ???

I don't think so, but "ask a priest" is a safer answer.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""
