It was an especially joyous Trinity Sunday on June 4, 2023 for St. Michael’s Lutheran Church in St. Petersburg as Ruslam Salimov and Sergei Pahl joined the Lutheran congregation upon completing the Basics of Christian Faith course shortly before. Ruslan Salimov received the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. Sergei Pahl was confirmed and so reunited with the church of his ancestors who were members and benefactors of St. Michael’s in the 19th century. God’s blessings to our brothers as they follow Jesus!
