Patronage Opportunities – ICONOGRAPHY!

Iconography Etc. Patron List (22 Jan 2016)

As was done with the St. Thomas Chapel at All-Saints Camp (UOC-USA), the list of donors and the people being memorialized and honored will be kept in two books; one in the narthex for public perusal and the other in the altar for commemoration at the Divine Liturgy (proskomedia).  If you are interested in reserving an icon in honor or memory of a person, family, etc., contact Fr. Borislav at!  While there is no set minimum or maximum to sponsor an icon, there is a suggestion donation of at least $1000 for the full-length icons and $500 for the medium-sized ones, and $250 for the smaller ones.
