I was born and raised in Orthodoxy in Olyphant, Pennsylvania.In 1956 I joined the Air Force and was stationed in South Dakota for four years. There was not an Orthodox Church within 300 miles. I then attended Catholic and various Protestant Services. Every Pascha I went home to receive my annual Sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion. A recall in 1961 took me out of Penn State and brought me out to Missouri. I joined the “Russian Church on the hill”, in Kansas City, Kansas and have been a member of Holy Trinity for over 50 years. Whether you leave home for College, a job or the Military, once you are an Orthodox Christian you will most likely always return to Orthodoxy. Your “Soul” tells you that you have found the true faith.
