A new gift to our church

On Sunday 13 July our father rector installed a new icon, an icon of the Most Holy Theotokos, named the Gatekeeper, in the centre of the church.

This icon was executed and consecrated in Athos, the Greek mountain monastery, and was recently offered to a pilgrim named Valery with the instruction to leave it in the first church where he would pray. Thus, this icon of the Most Holy Theotokos Portaitissa of mount Athos  ended up in our place a few days ago. Father Anatoly accepted this gift with the gratitude from the whole parish. We need now to make a kiot for this icon, which will be hung in the left transept of the church.

This same person had previously offered our church an icon of the Holy Matron of Moscow and  funded the making of a kiot to enshrine it.

We warmly thank all those who financially contribute to adorning our cathedral. We wish everyone to benefit from the spiritual help and the intercession of the Theotokos.
