Holy Cross Orthodox Church Welcomes Newest Member - 11/08/15

The Holy Cross parish family rejoiced in sacramentally welcoming the newly-enlisted warrior for Christ, Michael (Brent) Fish, on Sunday, November 8, 2015: fittingly, the feast of the Archangel Michael and the Heavenly Powers. His sponsor was David Dylan Jenkins. May God grant the newest member of our Eucharistic fellowship "Many Years." His family hosted a wonderful luncheon following the Liturgy for all to share in their joy.
"Holy Chrismation is a Sacrament in which the baptized believer, being anointed with Holy Chrism on certain parts of the body, in the name of the Holy Spirit, receives the gifts of the Spirit for growth and strength in spiritual life." (Philaret's Catechism).
