With the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan HILARION, Archbishop of Eastern America and New Your, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, this year St. Michael the Archangel Orthodox Mission in Pakistan has taken a very important step by printing the following office requisites:
- Baptism and Chrismation Register
- Marriage Register
- Birth Certificate and Death Certificate
- Family Cards
Father Joseph Farooq along with his pastoral team has started registration of the Christian Orthodox Families. Each family has been issued a family registration card and family registration number is allotted to them. There are 4 columns printed in the family card:
- Family members name entry:
- Date of Birth
- Date of Baptism and Chrismation
- Monthly alms donation (Although our community is very poor yet to promote the sense of offering from their honest wages and make them thankful to God for His Divine blessings upon their families).
The Orthodox Community received the cards very happily and they reflect their strong spiritual unity and association with Russian Orthodox Church in Pakistan.
We completed this registration process in 2 months with total comment and dedication, we kept on going from door collecting family data and record and making their entry in parish registers. In Pakistan the Christian Community is deprived of basic human rights and facilities. Through this registration, orthodox Christians feel the sense of belonging to the Church, sense of protection and security.
The Russian Orthodox Church outside Russia (ROCOR) is firmly established in Pakistan. Our Orthodox mission in Pakistan is indeed going well under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the Most Holy Theotokos.
