Sunday, December 23, St Stephen's BCC in Phoenix chrismated one adult convert and a teen, as well as a toddler whose parents were former parishioners, now living in Kansas and visiting relatives here for Christmas.

Next Sunday we will have an infant baptism, and there are three more expectant mothers due in the coming weeks!

We thank God for the blessing of these new souls to the Church.

Fr. Nils told us that a nun was in (joyful) tears when he ordered blank forms for our Baptisms and Chrismations, due to our actually having children (and no shortage of them!) in the parish.

Sts. Volodymyr and Olha UGCC in Chicago usually has several every month, and all four priests working in that parish as well as the one to two deacons stay very busy.

We had another infant Baptism this morning and the parents came into the Church. I also think we have had two births in Dec. So, St. George is always busy with babies and Baptisms. I have also noiticed that we have a number of new adults at the church too biggrin Glory to God!
