Иерей Иоанн Мэхэн крестил в православие группу прошедших катехизацию американцев.

Priest John Mahan baptized and received into Orthodoxy,  a group of catechesis-prepared , Americans.

 Таинство было совершено в приходе в честь Рождества Пресвятой Богородицы, в Гринвилле, Северная Каролина, США, в храме, который построил и в готором служил протоиерей Григорий Вильямс.

 The sacrament was committed in the parish of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in Greenville, North Carolina, USA, in the temple, which was built previously  and which had been served by Archpriest Gregory Williams, and Fr. John Hinton and some other visiting priests.

(Note: APPEAL: This small but growing struggling parish, a mix of various Orthodox ethnic believers,  and their young children and grandchildren,   [Russians and Greeks, Arabs and others,  plus new converts],  is planning on soon constructing a proper iconostasis, with good traditional Orthodox icons,  but they ask any donations  for this expensive project, from anyone who may wish to help them. Any help will be greatly  appreciated!  Please notify Fr.John Mahan, the rector: <> )
Note: They have well attended daily  vespers, and at sunday liturgies, the small church is packed to overflowing,  with over 40 people. They are a pious and zealous flock,  and happy to have their own full time, resident priest, finally. Fr. John has much hope for the growth of this parish family. May God bless and prosper them! MANY YEARS!  MNOGAYA LETA!
