My name is Cassandra, I was baptized Cassandra Nicole and I celebrate my nameday on Dec 6th

I am a cradle Orthodox and I have attended the same Greek Orthodox parish my entire life. I have often thought of attending a parish that uses more English but I can't seem to bring myself to do it :doh:

I recently (not so recently anymore) completed a degree in biology and I am putting it to good use working in finance ;) gotta pay the bills right?!?

I teach Sunday School (7th grade) and I am hoping to begin learning to chant - my Priest is very supportive of this even though he has heard me sing!!! :amen:

In December of 2007 I was elected to the Parish council and am currently serving as the assistant secretary.

After serving as a lay reader for about a year I was tonsured as a reader on April 20, 2008 (Palm Sunday) an honor which I can only strive to be worthy of :crosseo: Lord Have Mercy!

As someone who's had to start over several times, don't knock growing up in a church! It means you know people. :)

My answers:
1. Real name - Thor; Patron saint - St. Mark the Evangelist (Mark is my middle name)
2. Antiochian (Midwest Diocese - St. Nicholas Church in Grand Rapids, MI)
3. Catechumen (coming from a background that includes the Assemblies of God, Methodism and Messianic Judaism)
4. Married with two precious little girls. Not a whole lot of time for hobbies, although I do enjoy reading (my priest is helping me keep me busy) and surfing the 'net. I don't have any significant involvement with my church yet, although I have been asked to help out with the reading and chanting at a few Matins services.
