Haven't posted in awhile but I wanted to share that I recently had the first conversation with our priest about becoming Orthodox. He thought it may be Christmas Eve.

So after nearly 7 years of thought, study, and prayer, the beginning of mine and my family's journey is close!

Glory to God! May the Lord have mercy on you and your family throughout the catechumenate process.
