Magda's wedding

I am currently one of the sysops here on OrthodoxWiki. You are more than welcome to comment and ask questions on my talk page.

Internal

External

(Based on a similar section of Basil's.)

Ideas for the wiki

  • "How-to" page explaining what needs to be included on each image; maybe a template/category indicating that something is missing so we can go back and fix/find
  • Hagiographical something like the WikiProject Saints, what to include, where to get information, restrictions on OCA image use, other guidelines

Personal

Magda

I am married to a deacon who is studying at the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts.

A convert from Catholicism, I was chrismated on January 25, 2004, the feast day of St. Gregory the Theologian. I chose the name Magdalene for my middle name to honor my patron saint, St. Mary Magdalene, whose feast day is July 22.

My husband and I were married on July 24, 2004, at St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church [1] of South Bend, Indiana, by Fr. George Konstantopoulos.

One of my favorite authors is Frederica Mathewes-Green.

I am interested in iconography—both in the writing and interpreting of icons—and in learning Byzantine chant.

Please feel free to email me or read my blog.

Pray for me, a sinner.

Magda's Husband

My husband, Dn. Virgil, came from Romania to pursue undergraduate studies. His most recent degree is a doctorate in computer science. At Holy Cross, he participates in the school's soccer and basketball teams. He enjoys chanting, working for the Church, and sharing really bad puns. He is nigh invulnerable and quite tall, both on purpose.

Our parish assignment is at St. Vasilios Greek Orthodox Church [2] in Peabody, Massachusetts. He is involved in adult education as well as teaching the hymns of the Church to the church school students.
