For My Tonsuring
« on: November 27, 2005, 06:16:55 PM »
On December 4th (a week from today) I will be tonsured a reader by His Eminence, Archbishop +DMITRI at St. Barbara's Orthodox Church in Ft. Worth.  I'll "take" the name David--I say "take" because David is actually my given first name from birth--but will still be on here as Pedro.

Your prayers would be appreciated.
