Conversion Procedures

Depending on the jurisdiction, you might be received by Confession of Faith and/or Chrismation (Confirmation, more or less) if you’re already baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Otherwise it’ll be by full Baptism and Chrismation…maybe by triple immersion like John Corbet was in My Big Fat Greek Wedding!

This would follow maybe 9 months to a year – maybe more, maybe less – of classes, talking with the priest, reading and study, praying, attending parish functions, and hopefully actually CONVERTING, or becoming Orthodox, at least in a beginning sort of way. As I’ve mentioned, it’s something we hope to be about from here to forever and beyond.

The priest has final say on when you’re received into Orthodoxy, and how you’re received.
