Dipolog, Zamboanga del Norte, Philippines, September 8, 2021
A great spiritual event occurred in the Philippines this week, as a group of 12 men and women were baptized into Christ in His holy Orthodox Church in the waters of the West Philippine Sea.
The dozen newly-illumined are all former members of a Monophysite church, reports the Diocese of the Philippines and Vietnam.
The head of the diocesan missionary department, Fr. Moses Kahilig, and other catechists visited the city of Dipolog in the Zamboanga del Norte Province to teach the basics of the Orthodox faith to those who had previously asked to be accepted into the Church.
The Baptisms were celebrated following the catechetical seminar.
OrthoChristian has previously reported on several mass Baptisms in the Philippines.
