2 New Readers!
« on: January 14, 2011, 11:57:33 PM »
Glory to God!  Today (our parish feast day), our Bishop tonsured 2 new readers for the Church!  They have both been working very hard towards this, and it was truly a blessing to be there today to witness it. 

Please keep Symeon and Ephrem (their Baptismal names) in your prayers as they begin on this new journey and to continue to let God guide them :).  Thank you!
"If you leave me free in my religion, I will be very eager to carry out your commands. But if you try to force me to change my faith, I will first surrender my head. I was born a Christian and a Christian I shall die."

--St. John the Russian to his Turkish master

Glory to God!    :angel:
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
