Holy Cross holds Icon Festival - 10/18/14

Holy Cross Orthodox Church in Williamsport held their Icon Festival on October 18, 2014. It was truly an inspirational and enlightening event in the life of our community and for the many visitors who attended. Special "guest" for the day was the Weeping Icon of St Anna from St. Tikhon's Monastery, brought by Fr Steven Voytovich, Dean of St. Tikhon's Seminary. After an Akathist Service, we were blessed with a dynamic presentation/demonstration by noted iconographer, Lynette Hull on "Encountering the Icon." The Holy Cross Auxiliary offered many delicious ethnic foods and desserts for lunch, after which attendees shopped at St. Tikhon's Bookstore and watched a video of the Our Lady of Tikhvin Icon. Vespers concluded the day, with a heartfelt farewell to our "special guest." Thanks to all who participated!
