You can also be a godfather or godmother

Are you interested in helping a child to enter into the body of our Orthodox Church through the holy mystery of Baptism?

We all know how important the christening of a child is. It is a necessary institution and responsibility for the infants’ spiritual strengthening, within an Orthodox environment, in an Orthodox Church with the regular church-going and the uninterrupted exercise to the share of the Holy Communion and prayer.

The necessary cross for each new baptized person and the so-called 'emfotia' clothes which must be white because they symbolise the purity and clarity, are two basic needs of the infant that is to become a member in our God-founding Church.

The "godfather" is expected together with his prayers to reinforce economically too, a child’s baptism that costs 100euro, thus covering the costs of the mystery (cross and clothes), as well as the initial expenses of the child. The godfather has the right of naming the child.

We are very pleased to inform you that by the time these lines are being written our baptisms have reached the number 24. A legal receipt with the name of the child is necessarily sent for each baptism.
