Personal

Magda

I am married to a priest who serves at the (GOARCH) parish of St. Barbara in Sarasota, Florida.

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. We are currently expecting our second child.

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, Fr. Peter, came from Romania to pursue undergraduate studies. Prior to graduating from Holy Cross as the valedictorian, his most recent degree was a doctorate in computer science. He enjoys sports, singing (opera, barbershop, and chant), working for the Church, and sharing really bad puns. He is nigh invulnerable and quite tall, both on purpose.
