Father George, our Sunday School children, teachers, Altar Boys, our Church Choir and parishioners gather on the solea to sing “Agios o Theos” following the Procession of Icons on the Sunday of Orthodoxy, Sunday, March 5, 2017. Children learned the history of how Icons were restored to the Orthodox Church after a long period of banishment. Our Icons are very important in our faith as they serve to help us worship God and remind us that Christ and the Saints were real people. We venerate our Icons by lighting candles near them, kissing them and making our Cross. Orthodox Christians also venerate Icons in their own homes as a daily reminder of what God has done for us through Jesus and the Saints.
