Faye Thomas of Ottawa, Ontario
discusses briefly her conversion from
Roman Catholicism to Orthodox Christianity

I am a parishioner of St. Elias Cathedral in Ottawa Ontario, Canada. I am a convert to Orthodoxy. I was married in the Orthodox Church in 1976 and after six years of learning about Orthodoxy I decided to convert. My Roman Catholic background had taught me about Christianity, but what impressed me the most about the Orthodox faith was how I learned about the LOVE OF GOD—it still amazes me to this day. I am a Church School teacher and a member of the Antiochian Women. I am constantly learning about our one true Orthodox faith and feel privileged to belong to it. I am the mother of four children and 2 grandchildren. I never realized how much joy grandchildren could bring into one‘s life. For those of you who have not yet experienced this joy—it truly is wonderful!
