Baptism and wedding in Santa Maria

For some time we have been in correspondence with a couple from Cebu, in the central Philippines. There is not a single canonical Orthodox parish on their whole island. On Saturday they flew to Davao and traveled here to Santa Maria. That evening the catechumen Nina was baptized and betrothed; then Sunday after the Divine Liturgy the couple was married. A very full, and very joyful weekend!

Many years to the newlywed servants of God Stephen and Nina!

They have now returned home to the island of Cebu. I know of a handful of Orthodox individuals and inquirers there, but in that huge and influential city there is no Orthodox parish.

Please pray with us that one day we can start a mission in Cebu!
