Kursk Root Icon - 01/30/10

The Wonderworking Kursk Root Icon of Our Lady of the Sign visited our parish. Clergy and laity from St. Joseph of Optina Orthodox Church (ROCOR) and Dormition of the Theotokos Orthodox Church (OCA) joined together at the chapel at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Norfolk to greet her. The clergy served an Akathist to the Most Holy Theotokos and then everyone was afforded an opportunity to venerate her.  Afterwards a presentation was given concerning her historic return to Kursk, Russia.
