New Chrismations from Prison

Dear to Christ members of the OCPM family… 

I had the great honor and blessing to Chrismate two men in prison yesterday. The men were filled with such incredible joy. Things worked out perfectly to hear both of their confessions before the service. They also received Holy Communion. It was truly holy ground. Please pray for Irenaeus and Michael, the newly illumined. Their sponsor was a man tonsured by Metropolitan Isaiah as a monastic many years ago in the prison where I served as Chaplain. Please pray for Monk Silas as well. May our Lord keep them safe and on the path of Orthodoxy all the days of their lives.

By your prayers,

Fr. Stephen
