The image of our Lady Theotokos is one of the most popular in our Orthodox faith. We can understand this because of the many miraculous icons that exist and have been named for her. The Awesome Protection, the Axion Estin, the Portaitisa. On the 1st of October, we celebrated the famous miraculous icons of Panagia Quick to Hear, Gorogoepikoos, which we have a special blessing and comentor with the Archangels and St. Panteleimon in our parish. We celebrated this feast with an evening Divine Liturgy, followed by a lovely pot luck supper.
May our Lady Theotokos intercede to her Son and Lord Jesus Christ for us and shelter all of us and keep us in good health!
Your parish priest
