My (Continuous) Journey Through Orthodoxy

The last time I blogged about my journey through Orthodoxy I ended with, "However it all works out, in truth, both parishes are equally spiritual homes for my family and I that we love very much."

Since then, there has come updates. Let me link the first 2 parts of my story, first.
  1. My Journey Through Orthodoxy
  2. My (Continuing) Journey Through Orthodoxy
Well now, come October 1st, due to a change in what office I work at for Bank of America, we will be moving from Haltom City to Euless. Living in Euless, we will no longer be roughly equidistant from Saint Barbara Orthodox Church in Fort Worth and Saint John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Euless. As such, effective October 1, 2012, we will be calling Saint John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Euless our church home. Saint Barbara Orthodox Church in Fort Worth will now be almost an hour away from our new home.

I guess it makes sense since The Very Reverend Protopresbyter Vasile Tudora is my spiritual father and confessor, that his church becomes our family church, but I will miss The Very Reverend Archpriest Basil Zebrun and all of our church family at Saint Barbara Orthodox Church in Fort Worth when we move too. Of course I will be sure to attend during their festivals and special events, so it will not be goodbye forever come October 1st, 2012.

UPDATE: Later, a job took me to Dallas, and so we began to attend the nearest parish, Saints Constantine and Helen Antiochian Orthodox Church in Carrollton, and during the COVD-19 Novel Coronavirus Global Pandemic, we either watched the divine services from Saint Barbara Orthodox Christian Church in Forth Worth or Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in East Meadow, New York.



  1. Oh! Sad to "see" you "go," (since I'm hundreds of miles away and you'll still be around there), but such is the life of mobile 21-C. people...

  2. Indeed. Home is only home for so long. See the list to the left showing my various home parishes over the last 10 years.
