New Iconography - 08/02/09

Father Theodore Jurewicz returned in August 2009 to continue the adornment of our temple with his iconography . It is our hope to complete the entire project by the Feast of Our Lord's Nativity 2012. God willing, Fr. Theodore will return during Bright Week of 2010 to complete the Sanctuary, which is the first of three phases of the plan. If you are interested in making an offering to help complete this project, please contact Fr. John.
