Holy Baptism

Fr. Silouan and I have just returned to our hotel room from baptizing a group of 10 catechumens on the Island of Leyte.  This was the first time that I have baptized any Orthodox in the ocean.  It was a blessed experience.  Tomorrow we will be serving the first communion to the newly illumined.  Here are some photos of the blessed sacrament.

      Father Konstantine Lautillo would be happy to hear from you. He can tell you how to get to his church in Parañaque. I have two phone numbers for him: +63 999-880-0095 or +63 917-526-5971 One or both numbers should help you get in touch.
