Photos of Phase I - East Iconography Progress -

We have received a number of pictures from
Themis Petrou, our iconographer, showing the
progress of the iconography to date. This first
batch of pictures shows progress on five icons:
The Ascension of Christ, the Extreme Humility of
Christ, the Nativity of Christ, the Sacrifice of
Abraham, and the Hospitality of Abraham. You’ll
notice that the pictures show various stages of
progress and several other people working on
them other than Themis Petrou. I’ll be
explaining these things over the coming weeks in
church. As we receive more pictures from more
of his work, we will post them on the website.
Saint Nicholas Iconography Program
Iconography for Phase I – East:
pleased to report Themis Petrou, our iconographer is now working on the
first phase, starting with sketches for each icon. We will be receiving
photos of his sketches and later of his finished icons, which when available
will be placed on display. We are looking forward to Themis Petrou placing
icons in the eastern end of the Church in late September 2013. With
appreciation for all Sponsors of icons, please note that all icon requests
have been satisfied, including whole, shared and partial icon
contributions. In the next few weeks, Committee members will contact
Sponsors to verify names for recognition purposes as well as
commemorations. We recommend children’s names be included and Baptismal
names be used; considering that donor recognition will be on display for
many years. Should others wish to donate towards iconography, please
consider making a contribution to the Church Iconography Fund, which remains
booklet for Phase I - East Iconography program with Biblical references
and icon examples is available from the Bookstore as well as from
Iconography Implementation Committee
members. A $20 contribution is requested to help defray costs.
