Icon Procession Sunday March 4

This Sunday we will have an icon procession during the Divine Liturgy.  Please feel free to bring an icon from home to carry reverently in the procession.  The first Sunday of Great Lent had traditionally commemorated the restoration of icons and the Triumph of Orthodoxy over the iconoclasts.  Read more about how to make our procession here at our Spruce Island blog for February 29.  (Addendum:  And see photos of our own St. Herman's procession that day here on our Spruce Island blog for Tues. March 6.  Thank you "Lil'M" for posting them!)
