I just made my first confession in the Orthodox Church. I received the name of Nikolai, having chosen, with the guidance of my priest, St. Nicholas, to whom our parish is dedicated, and who is already the patron saint of our family. I then read the Creed, and renounced my former Roman Catholic beliefs.
Tomorrow morning, I will take Communion.
This whole experience of this inquiry, this Great Lent, and now especially this weekend has been powerful and humbling, and I thank all of you for your help and support along the way. Pray for me tomorrow!
