Lazarus Saturday Baptismal Liturgy - 04/16/11

On this Lazarus Saturday, not only did our parish serve the festal Divine Liturgy, but we were also overjoyed at the baptism of Christopher Shaffner. A convert to the Orthodox Faith, Christopher was received into the Church through the holy sacrament of Baptism. Serving as his Sponsor, was Subdeacon Nicholas Kormos.
