Gravesend Family become Orthodox Communicants

Following today’s regular monthly celebration of the Divine Liturgy at Saint Alban and Saint Athanasius British Orthodox Church in Chatham, His Eminence Abba James, the Mafrian, baptised the 3½ year old Laura, along with her sixteen month old brother Adam, following which His Beatitude Abba Seraphim chrismated them both, whilst conferring on them the additional religious names of Mary and Luke. At the same time their mother, Mrs Emma of Gravesend was chrismated, following which she and her children received Holy Communion on having become full members of the Orthodox Church.
