Sunday of Orthodoxy

March 21 was the first Sunday of Great Lent, the Sunday of Orthodoxy, when we celebrate the restoration of icons in the Churches after a period in the 8th and 9th centuries when the rise of a false theology resulted in the destruction of most icons at the time.

PTVM is blessed to be adding traditional iconography to our nave. Iconographer John Jurewicz has been hard at work since September on a series of icons depicting the life of our patron, the Virgin Mary. Click to see more of his work!
