Introduction to Orthodoxy in Maitum

On July 11, we presented a series of talks on the Orthodox faith, in the municipal auditorium at Maitum, Sarangani.

Orthodox Christians including Fr Silouan and John Mahinay shared how they came to the Orthodox faith, and missionary Alphaeus Sucayre gave a talk on the history of Christianity. Between speakers, visitors from Russia sang Orthodox hymns in Slavonic, and an ad hoc choir of singers from Polomolok, Alabel, Kiblawan and Santa Maria sang in Cebuano. Father Kirill Shkarboul, Orthodox priest from Taiwan, gave a closing message.

Over a hundred inquirers, catechumens, friends and neighbors attended an event in Maitum. Attendees included Roman Catholics, Aglipayans, Methodists and others. We were delighted with the level of interest and enthusiasm among those present!

Catechumens and faithful in the area are building an Orthodox temple at Maitum in anticipation of their baptism. Please pray that they be guarded and guided home to the Church.
