You are invited to join us for the following three Saint Macrina Lectures by Archbishop Lazar, Abbott of All Saints of North America Monastery
Baptism / Chrismation
as Ordination
1pm PST • 2pm MST • 3pm CST • 4pm EST
Baptism and Chrismation are clearly combined in the Orthodox Church, and an infant will receive Communion immediately, or as soon as possible, after Baptism/Chrismation. Even when someone converted to Orthodoxy is received through the ekonomia of Chrismation alone, it is clearly understood that the Chrismation is the completion of their previous baptism and supplies what was deficient in that baptism. Chrismation is, in a manner of speaking, an anointing into the royal priesthood. What does it mean to be such a priest of the royal priesthood, and how does this shape our lives together?
