About Me

My name is Jean-Michel Dossogne. Since 12/feb/2006, I am an acolyte in Rocor, attached to Metochion sainte Catherine d'Alexandrie et saint Feuillen in Philippeville, kingdom of Belgium.

I have been 12 years in the Belgian Navy, am decorated of Military Merit, Gulf War 1988, Kuweit Liberation Medal (Gulf War 1991) and an ancienity medal. Our beloved Lord placed lots of lifebuoys and lifelines in my life. The one and only I didn't ignore was Nathalie, who became my wife. The Lord has given us the grace of 3 pious princesses. I left the Navy for the Police when my wife was pregnant of our first daughter. After some year of duty as intervention patrol, I had a "little problem" on service, hospital couldn't help, and they put me on forced premature retirement for handicap. To touch Jacob, our Lord had to send an Angel to fight with him, and only then he understood.. That's my first real conscious contact with God.

I am the responsible for the parish website, under supervision of our father abbot/higoumen. I am member of the Velosolex Club of Belgium - my old black engine is as old as I am, but works much better now..

As our Lord said that to have long days on earth, we have to honnour our parents : I am particularly involved in the veneration of all what our Church Fathers and Mothers from the Orthodox West have brought to the hole Church. Liturgically too.
