The move from Rome to the East.

There is a slew of examples of converts to Orthodoxy from Protestantism but is there a website for those who have moved from Roman Catholicism to Eastern Orthodoxy? :)

If anyone wishes to write a conversion story, I will post it on our site!

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

I'm a former Roman Catholic that is currently a catechumen.  My spiritual father hasn't set an exact date but it looks like my reception into Orthodoxy will be sometime this January.  Once school gets out (this Thursday is my last day of finals!!) I plan to sit down and write out my story.  I can't promise it will be worth reading though...

Anything's gotta be better than finals...trust me, I know.  

Your suffering brother...
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

...if you feel Mor really is in spiritual danger, pray the Jesus prayer for him.   :police:
