I was chrismated and recieved into the Holy Orthodox Church on Saturday, November 11th, 2006 at St. Mark's Orthodox Church in Wrightstown, PA. I began this journal during my "pre-catechesis" days, and use this journal mostly for writings about the Apostolic Faith and my journeys in it. There will also be ramblings about opera:). I am otherwise known as catandfiddle (my regular ElJay) and calais (my woefully under-updated reading journal). Feel free to add one, or three, of me. I'll probably add you back.:-)
