As anecdotal evidence, I was chrismated (born RC, practicing EC for 10 years) when received into the Church

It doesn't matter how I was received.  I flew to Athos and was baptised just to make sure because someone on the internet said you had to do so.

Ok, I was chrismated.

I really wouldn't say you have to, but it's definitely preferable over driving.

We drove there once and boy I'll never do it again.  Tolls are way too expensive.

Huh ... I would have thought you'd come back with a "boy were my arms tired" line.

Geez, I can't imagine...Johnstown to Chicago was $80 round trip last month for the Turnpikes. Must be a lot on the trans-Atlantic expressway....

I recognize this topic has been active for a while, but there are two married deacons in my Eparchy who are going to be ordained next summer. We only have one married priest in the Eparchy (Father Francis from Sacramento), but he is Slovak ethnically, so he is an import.

We'll see what happens, though.

Your Bishop is a vocation from Holy Spirit BCC in Binghamton, NY - which today has a married priest and family (from Slovakia). He had many relatives at our next door Orthodox parish as well. Let us pray he follows through with the ordinations.
