JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

Mass Baptism of the Catechumens of St. Isidore (of Rostov) the Wonderworker Orthodox Church: Photos taken during the Mass Baptism (April 24, 2015) of the catechumens of the newly accepted “St. Isidore the Wonderworker Orthodox Church” in Purok Tagumpay, Poblacion Alabel, Sarangani Province, Philippines. A former parish of the “Philippine Independent Catholic Church” (also known as Aglipayan Church) now embracing Orthodoxy. This is the third parish of the Moscow Patriarchate in the Philippines. Another dozens of Aglipayan parishes is set to be receive and baptize in the next few months. Many years to the newly baptized Filipino Orthodox Christians!
