8/19/10 - A Baptism at the Feast of the Transfiguration: Life TransfiguredAugust 19, 2010On August 5-6, when the Church celebrates the Great Feast of the Transfiguration of Christ, the catechumen Olga Lorelei Trammell, a graduate of Bard High School was Baptized, Chrismated and received Holy Communion. Her godparents are Jeffery and Tatiana Hoff. Also present were members of her family and friends from her graduating class. Olga Lorelei will attend Binghamton University in the Fall. The feast of the Transfiguation is a icon of our calling to become by grace what God is by nature - to grow from glory to glory, to be the light of Christ in the world -- to lead a life transfigured by the Holy Spirit. On this day we also blessed grapes and first fruits ripened to perfection for use in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Photos: Luarsabishvili
