Joining the Orthodox
The Orthodox Church welcomes
believers from all backgrounds and traditions. The process for joining for the Orthodox Church requires a great deal of preparation

directed by the church.
these, they are received into the Church through the Sacrament of Chrismation (the anointing of holy myrrh). This service
is usually conducted in public on major holy days of the year, above all at Holy Pascha (Easter). Believers who do not have a baptism in the name of the Holy Trinity, along with seekers
from other religious traditions or no tradition, are received into the Church through the same process that leads to Baptism
instead of Chrismation.
