catechumenate.jpgOn Sunday, December 9/21, the servant of God Elias was received into the Holy Orthodox Church by the Mysteries of Baptism and Chrismation.

The services of the making of a Catechumen, the Baptism, and the Chrismation were performed in English with the sponsors and a few guests present. In accordance with the canons of the Church, the baptism occurred by full immersion three times.

Elias was raised in the Roman-Catholic heresy, but having come to know Christ at a mature age, is now an Orthodox Christian. He is a member of the parish of St John of Kronstadt in Sydney.

May God grant health and salvation, and many years, to our brother in Christ, the newly-illumed Elias, and may he keep his baptism pure from any stain, error or sin!
