Archbishop Ambrose of Peterhof carried out the rite of joining the Orthodox Church of the Catholic priest Constantine Simon.

Deacon Paul Yermylov shared news of this conversion of a Catholic priest into the Russian Orthodox Church on his Facebook page.

This is not the first time a Catholic priest has decide to join the Orthodox Church.

For example, thirty-six year old Cuban Archimandrite Jerome (Espinoza), the famous chemist and graduate of a Catholic theological school, dramatically changed his life when he took monastic vows and devoted himself to serving the Orthodox Church.
