On Palm Sunday 2010, a young lady was chrismated into the Orthodox Church.

What is chrismation, you may ask? Father Michael J. Burben explains: 

The young lady’s patron Saint is St. Elizabeth the New Martyr. Her mother has a weblog, Abide and Endeavor. Here is her post, Many Years to Princess: 

Here is a picture from that post, of Elizabeth, her sponsor, and her Priest:

May God grant you many years, Elizabeth!

Here are some more posts by her mother, Juliana, concerning Elizabeth: 

Some of the things one discovers about Elizabeth is that “she does extremely well with her work-related (Food Service) reading and school reading.” . . .  

She can be an enthusiastic worker: “She has really enjoyed her summer job. I could tell because she was up early every workday, ready to head out the door.” . . .  

And she likes to sing: “Princess is up in her room singing along with her latest country music CD.” . . .

Also, she “loves the retro purses.”  

Here are some posts from Abide and Endeavor that discuss Down Syndrome:

I’m going to include Juliana’s Abide and Endeavor in “Online Orthodox Christian Families” in the Resources.
