Protection Parish welcomes five souls to Catechumenate!

This past Sunday, August 16 witnessed the entry of five enquirers into the catechumenate, the formal period of instruction wherein we Orthodox pray especially for their impending enlightenment. Likewise, the newly-enrolled catechumens are enjoined to pray and study particularly to enter the fullest understanding of the blessed mysteries of Christ into which they are about to enter.

Let us then welcome with open hearts the newest members of our community, who are also newcomers to the entire tradition of Orthodox Christianity and church life: James and Holly Parnell with their infant son Samuel; Rufus Lyle and Deborah Fetch. May God bless them richly and may their gifts to the Lord be fully manifest! God Grant them many years!
