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.

Lord, have mercy.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.
