Miraculous Iveron Icon of the Mother of God to Visit Holy Cross and Washington-Baltimore Area

By the Grace of God and through the intercessions of the Mother of God, Holy Cross Church is honored and blessed to host the Miraculous Icon of the Holy Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary (Iveron-Hawaiian) on Sunday evening, July 17. Plan to come and bring friends and neighbors as we venerate the Myrrh-Streaming Icon through which so many have been healed, comforted, and converted to the Faith. A Paraklesis will be served before the Icon at 5:00pm and everyone will have a chance to be anointed and, God willing, receive a portion of the holy Myrrh.

Lent begins late this year, so in the gray days of February, come to Holy Cross for an uplifting evening of warmth and green. On Sunday, February 21 at 5:00pm, we'll gather to pray an Akathist to the Celtic Saints; then we'll enjoy a traditional Irish dinner with a photo tour of some holy sites in that blessed country.

Suggested donation is $30 per person, and every penny will go straight to supporting the Monastery of All Celtic Saints on the Isle of Mull in Scotland, which is in need of major repairs in order to open its doors.
