Found Treasures

Following a beautiful Divine Liturgy, and Vespers for Pentecost on Sunday June 3, 2012, a discovery was made in a dusty crawl space!  While looking at some old pictures of when our Church was built, Blessed Sub-Deacon and Reader Jeffrey Hoover noticed an Icon that he did not recall seeing anywhere in the church.  Thinking  back, he remembered being told a long time ago that there were some Icons in a crawl space.  With some nudging he set up the ladder and started to investigate.  To our surprise and amazement he found four Icons wrapped in plastic.  They were remarkably in beautiful shape.  They are painted on canvas and their colors are beautiful.  They date back to the late fifty's which make them over 50 years old.  The three smaller ones were:  St. Basil, St. Nicholas, and St. Ann.  The larger one is of the Resurrection.  This one appears to need a bit of work, but the others need a good dusting.  What a blessing to find these beautiful Holy Icons that were stored away for many years.  They will be dusted off and on display in the Church until a proper place is found for them.  Enjoy the pictures!
