The Seven Sacraments



Questions on the Sacraments

I have two questions concerning the sacraments:

If a person is interested in becoming a member of an Orthodox Church in America (OCA) parish, and if that person was baptized in a Luther...


The Sacraments

What about the sacraments? How many are there? How does the Orthodox Church understand them?


Baptismal Names

How does one pick a baptismal name when one converts? My daughter, age 12, will be baptised soon, and I will be either baptised or chrismated. Neither of our names "suit."


Seven Sacraments

I'd just like to ask a question about the sacraments. Were all seven sacraments around at the beginning of the church, or were they established centuries later?
