327 Catechumens Baptized in Zimbabwe

Through the blessing of Patriarch Theodore II of Alexandria and All of Africa, Metropolitan George of Zimbabwe conducted today, December 30th, three hundred and twenty-seven baptisms for catechumens in the parish of St. Nektarios in Harare.

The majority of the converts were youth and young adults who had completed a catechism class over the past 12 months.

Following the lengthy baptismal service, clothes and shoes were distributed to over a thousand men, women and children who belong to the parish.

Those attending the baptismal service were Protopresbyter George Saganis from Athens, and the African priests Fr. Raphael Gada, Fr. Augustine Moketsi, and the newly-ordained Deacon Demetrios Nyandebvu.
