We're too small and poor for our own church- we rely on the kindness of others and celebrate the Divine Liturgy at old convents, Roman-rite chapels and Byzantine churches of different ethnic jurisdictions.
We may be small and poor but we are rich in beauty. These portable icons were written by an 89-year old artist who has made icons for entire churches and cathedrals. Her son, a Byzantine Catholic priest who we have never met, donated a full set of sacred vessels. Her other son is a cantor and altar servant. We 'get what we need' from these lovely folks who give so much- materially and spiritually- to the church community.
