== Magda ==
I am married to a seminarian at the [[Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology (Brookline, Massachusetts)|Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology]] in Brookline, Massachusetts. 
A [[convert]] from [[Roman Catholic Church|Catholicism]], I was [[chrismation|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. [[Apostle Andrew|Andrew]] Greek Orthodox Church [http://www.orthodoxchurchofstandrew.org] 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 [http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/index.php?title=Special:Emailuser&target=Magda email me] or read my [http://magdalini.blogspot.com blog].

== [[User:Vandrona|Magda's Husband]] ==
My husband 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.
My husband's parish assignment is at St. [[Basil the Great|Vasilios]] Greek Orthodox Church [http://www.stvasilios.org] in Peabody, Massachusetts.  He is involved in adult education as well as teaching the [[hymn]]s of the Church to the church school students.
