"This past mother's day I officially progressed from catechumen to convert, and AFR played an integral role in my coming home. In fact, I do not know how my transition from burned-out bapticostal to Orthodox could have happened without both AFR and the welcoming arms of St. Peter's Western Rite here in Ft. Worth. Bless you!"
