On March 29, Faye (Monica) was received into the Orthodox Faith through Chrismation, which is the receiving of the gift of the Holy Spirit through the anointing of a special oil. This ancient practice was introduced and blessed by the Apostles as a way for local communities to continue the tradition of “laying on of hands” (Acts 6:5-6, 8:14-19). She was the first to become a member of the Chapel of the Holy Spirit since we moved to our temporary location in the MACC.

May God grant the newly-illuminated Monica many years!
