Dormition Norfolk's Newly Illumined
« on: April 16, 2012, 02:51:38 PM »
Prayers and well wishes for all the newly illumined brought into the Church this past week at the Dormition of the Theotokos Orthodox Church in Norfolk, VA. I attended this parish last year when I lived up that way and am proud to hear that they brought in 14 new converts this Holy Saturday.

Many years, and Glory be to God!

Edit: PS they are a very small parish renting out space from another denomination- and now growing too fast to contain all the parishioners! Let us all also pray that they can soon find a new building to contain their great growth!

Thanks be to God!   :angel:
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Glory to God.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Many years!

I have worshiped in that parish in times past and am glad to read that it is growing.
