She ruled </p><p>over what is now Russia, Ukraine, </p><p>and more. Now, the people there are almost all Orthodox </p><p>Christians. But then, things were different. Most people </p><p>were pagan they did not worship our one, true God. </p><p>Once, St. Olga visited the great city of Constantinople. She learned about </p><p>the Christian Church and wanted to be baptized. Then, she went back to </p><p>Kiev (where she lived), and took care of her grandsons. Many years later, </p><p>one of her grandsons, Vladimir, became emperor. He remembered the </p><p>faith of his grandmother. Then, Vladimir was baptized. Thousands of </p><p>people were baptized with him. </p><p>Over the years, millions and millions of people have worshipped as Or-</p><p>thodox Christians, thanks to this princessSt. Olga! </p><p>We celebrate the nameday of St. Olga on Friday, July 11th. </p><p>Saint OlgaSaint OlgaSaint OlgaSaint Olga </p></li></ul>
