Happy New(ish) year to you too. On the old calendar it's only the 6th of January after all Smiley

My goddaughter was received a few months ago in your church and as I recall there was no ceremony for her when she originally decided to become a catechumen and I don't think I've seen/heard of one for anyone else either. You just keep going to the classes until you feel ready to make the commitment.

Best wishes,
Margaret

There's not a ceremony, but there are prayers for the person entering the Catechumenate.  I've seen them done at the entrance to the church just before Liturgy begins (myself and my goddaughter) and I've also seen them done after a meeting with the priest during the week (my kids).

Perhaps other parishes/jurisdictions do it differently but that has been my experience. 

Oh I didn't mean to imply a general rule - I guess I'm not being very clear. I actually go to to the church Brass Monkey is talking about so I was making a very specific statement as to what happens there (or doesn't happen).

Regards,
Margaret

okay- sorry I misunderstood.

Otoh, when San Francisco, California had the terrible earthquake in 1906 and an Episcopal church was destroyed Bishop Tikhon, as I recall, gave them a chalice and paten so that they could have communion. They are still preserved as heirlooms.  I'll try and find the references to that if you're interested.

When I was at this church a while back, I remember being told that they had some sort of relics of Patriarch Tikhon.

Those would be the relics, I suspect.  Smiley
