Chrismation of Kim, Claire & Eva Hancock - 03/06/16

After Saturday's Great Vespers for Meatfare Sunday, March 6, 2106, Kim Hancock and 2 of her 4 children, Claire (12) and Eva (9) were Chrismated and received into the Holy Orthodox Church from the Roman Catholic Church, after appropriate instruction. Then, they received their first Orthodox Holy Communion during Sunday's Divine Liturgy. Kim's husband, Mark, and sons Henry (13) and Eric (15) attended both services to celebrate this joyful day with their family. For Kim, it was the jubilant fulfillment of a three-year spiritual journey.
