Visit of Hawaiian Icon – July 4

In October 2007, a simple print of a copy of the miraculous Iveron Icon of the Theotokos – nothing special in itself, just a paper print, but a reminder that God can work great miracles through the humblest of things – began to weep fragrant myrrh at the Russian parish in Honolulu, Hawaii. Since then, it continues to miraculously weep myrrh (fragrant oil) and has visited over a thousand parishes around the country, testifying to the love and mercy of our God, and the prayers of His Holy Mother. The beautiful smell completely fills a church after being in it for just minutes. Our own parish was blessed to welcome her in September 2022.

In last-minute plans, on the 4th of July, Our Lady will be hosted by St. Basil’s Russian Orthodox Church, 1449 Ridge Rd, Belle Vernon, PA 15012, just over 30 minutes away from St. John’s. A Moleben and Akathist will be sung before her on Thursday, July 4th, at 6:30 PM. Please come if you can: the grace present through this icon of the Mother of God is so very clear, yet so very profound. You will not taking part of your holiday!
