Take advantage of the valuable educational mission opportunity that occurs at Baptisms, when frequently visitors are present, many of whom might be  attending an Orthodox church for the first time. Teach these visitors, and teach the Orthodox people about their own Faith, by distributing this attractive, inexpensive pamphlet that explains the meaning of the Orthodox Sacraments (Mysteries) of Holy Baptism and Chrismation.

This pamphlet "translates" the Church's teachings and practices by explaining them in a way that ordinary people can understand, divided into sections. The first section presents the overall meaning of the combined Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Chrismation, while the subsequent sections make clear the significance of each element of the rites that comprise the Divine Service.
