Hi again everyone,

I haven't posted on this board in a very long time. I've been through quite a journey...in October 2003 I became a catechumen in the Orthodox Church (OCA jurisdiction). This Holy Saturday I was chrismated into the Orthodox Church.

I was originally Presbyterian, had gone through RCIA at a Roman Catholic church (but didn't join), then went to a Byzantine Catholic church. This is where I was when I was posting on this board. After I stopped posting, I started attending an Orthodox church. I just kept feeling compelled to go back.

I took the saint name of Juliana of Lazarevo.

Anyway, I just wanted to re-introduce myself to everyone.

Christ is risen!

Jenny Juliana smile

Welcome Jenny and congratulations on your entry into the Church.

May God grant you many years,

Thank you, Michael, Admin and Alex!

Michael,

I would love to hear your story! Please feel free to send me a private message if you're up to sharing.


Alex,

Technically I wasn't "one of you before" since I was never officially Byzantine Catholic (I just went to the parish for liturgy). Although, in my heart I had been one of you. smile Thank you for your well wishes, my Orthodox brother!!! smile

Jenny
