On the Sunday after Theophany 2019, the Romanus Voss was tonsured to the office of Reader in the Holy Orthodox Church. Reader Romanus, who was visiting Bp. Irineos in Texas was accompanied by his wife Julianna. Romanus and Julianna had been received by baptism into the Orthodox Church and married earlier on the visit.
Romanus is a former Old Catholic priest and has been actively involved in ministry since his youth. Born into a Mormon family, Romanus’s journey to the true faith has equipped him well to minister to a wide variety of faith traditions.
Romanus and Julianna live in Evanston, Wyoming and are in the process of petitioning for the establishment of a mission community.
