On Friday 3 April, with the blessing of Metropolitan Hilarion, Kelly Hailstone was received into the Holy Orthodox Church according to the Office of Receiving Converts from the Roman-Latin Confession and by Chrismation. In Orthodoxy Kelly was given the name Cecilia in honour of the Martyr Cecilia of Rome, a saint with whom she has had a connection since childhood. Her sponsor was Larissa Lupish. Also present was Kelly’s fiancé, Alexander Lupish, with whom she is now united in the Orthodox faith. May God grant his newly-enlightened handmaiden Cecilia many years!
