Newly Illumined Relatives
« on: August 09, 2009, 02:22:21 PM »
Offer your prayer of thanksgiving and praise!  Today my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, as well as my niece were all three received into the Orthodox Church this morning by baptism, chrismation, and communion. 

Their patrons are St. Matthew the Evangelist and Apostle, St. Panteleimon the Healer, and St. Mary Magdalene.

Many years!
