Wonderworking Iveron Icon of The Theotokos Begins Visits To Diocesan Parishes
JOHNSTOWN, PA -- On Saturday October 8, 2011 Christ the Saviour Cathedral was blessed with the visitation of the Myrrhstreaming Hawaii Iveron Icon of the Mother of God which is presently travelling to Diocesan and other Orthodox Parishes throughout the U.S.
The icon, upon its arrival in Johnstown at 4:30 pm, was met by Very Rev. Protopresbyter Frank P. Miloro, Cathedral Dean in the Narthex of Cathedral Church, where it was led in procession to a special place of honor on the Tetrapod. A Moleben to the Most Holy Mother of God was immediately served by Fr. Miloro assisted by Cathedral and Deanery Clergy.
During and following the Moleben Service scores of faithful came forward to be annointed with the tears from the icon and asking the intercession of the Mother of God for their individual needs.
Following the 6:00 pm celebration of Great Vespers, the faithful took leave of the icon which continued its journey to other Churches, filled with great joy and peace, grateful to God that they were able to experience this holy wonder.
