The Making of a Catechumen

On the Sunday of Pascha (Agape Vespers) ago we read prayers for Samuel (Cliff) Tewis who has decided he wants to enter the Orthodox Church.

The term catechumen comes from the Greek term “katakesis” and means instruction. A cathecumen is a person receiving instruction as he prepares for his baptism.

Jack Long will be Samuel’s Godfather (sponsor).

May God bless and teach the servant of God Samuel as he prepares for Holy Baptism and Chrismation.

The pictures below show Samuel Tewis, Jack Long, Jeremiah Tewis (Samuel’s brother) and Fr. Hans Jacobse.
