Western Rite Converts
« on: May 22, 2006, 11:43:14 AM »
I have some wonderful news!  A group of 20+ former Episcopalians and their priest are converting to the Orthodox Church under the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese, and tenatively they are to be chrismated in November, and they will work on opening a Western-Rite Orthodox mission in Houston.  Please pray for them and their future priest that their endeavors may be successful.  May God grant them success and many years in establishing their mission!

In the Risen Christ,

Michael

The Lord save and protect them.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
