I conducted a re-dedication Liturgy on behalf of several children of St. Gregorios Indian Orthodox Church, Mississauga. This was conducted after the Easter Service. This will help children who were baptized when they were still infants to dedicate themselves personally to the Lord and to the Church. The liturgy used was the one prepared by H.H. Baselius Marthoma Mathews I of blessed memory. Few Pictures:
