Group of Protestants Will Adopt Orthodoxy on Holy Saturday

April 2, 2010

A group of former Protestants will be baptized on the eve of Easter in St. Andrew Church of Kaliningrad, Russia.

Young men and women started visiting an Orthodox church several months ago. In the past, they had one problem - drug addiction - and they tried to get rid of it in the Transfiguration of Russia Protestant charitable organization, the Kaliningrad edition of the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily has reported on Thursday.

However, now the former Protestants want to adopt the Christian faith.

"In the past, people seeked for cures in sects as there were few Orthodox communities capable to effectively solving the problems of such people. However, time proved that even richest sects have got neither the experience nor authority to help them."
