My name is Juvenaly, named at my baptism after the Protomaryr of America. I am a member of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Western Diocese. I am a parishoner of Saint Peter the Apostle Serbian Orthodox Church in Fresno, CA.
I was raised as a Roman Catholic and converted to Orthodoxy on the Feast of the Nativity of Christ 4 years ago. I love reading of the lives of the Saints and spend a lot of my time transposing various books and articles on the life of the Orthodox Church and the Lives of the Saints.
I am married to the handmaiden of God, Katherine and together we have a daughter, Natalia. I sing in the choir and teach special education in an elementary school here in Fresno. I love the Services of the Church and have the desire to become a deacon or a priest.
I am also in the process of creating an Orthodox Missions Outreach in the Central Valley of California. I am working together with three of the local priests of the area and anyone else in the area that might be interested in this is free to message me and we can talk.
I like meeting new people and thought that this might be a good place to share my knowledge, how ever minimal this might be.
In Christ, Juvenaly
