I am a parishioner of St. Michael Antiochian Orthodox Church in Louisville, Kentucky. I was chrismated on 7 April 2018. I have been attending church there since 16 April 2017 and I grew up around the parish, having family members that went there. I am an acolyte. I am a former Catholic and have a passion for hagiography and the liturgical services of the church. I enjoy reading books about contemporary Athonite monks. My patron saints are the Prophet St. Elias and St. George the Great-martyr. I have devotions to many other saints, including but not limited to St. Jacob of Hamatoura and St. Mary of Egypt.
