Melina's Baptism

Melina Frances
Baptized June 27, 2004
St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church - St. Louis, MO
Page Updated 9/11/04.

Father Doug Papulis dunks Melina as Godmother Maria Nakis looks on.

Godmother Maria receives Melina - oiled up.

Procession of family members (three times around the font.)

The Ioannou's trying to pose.

Proud parents.

Four generations - Sam Nakis surrounded by grand-daughter (Molly), daughter (Maria) and great grand-daughter (Melina.)

Molly (according to Greek custom) washes Melina AFTER the baptism - but SAVES the water.

Note: Melina is in large vase, this was the best way to save the water.

So - what do you DO with it? Use it to water flowers and vegetables, as Christo is shown here doing.

Getting 2nd Communion back at St. Nicholas Antiochan Orthodox Church in Arkansas. Fr. John gives it to her as Fr. Tom helps.
