Dormition Icon

The Icon of the Feast of the Holy Dormition is on the front cover of this week’s bulletin.  Many are present at the Dormition of the Beloved Theotokos.  In the foreground we see St. Peter (dressed in plain clothes) incensing the Theotokos’ body and we see St. Paul (also in plain clothes) at the foot bowing in her honor.

Behind the crowd in the background we notice there are three Bishops present.   The bishops traditionally represented are James, the brother of the Lord, First Bishop of Jerusalem and the original author of our Divine Liturgy, Timothy Heirotheus, and Dionysius the Aeroagite.  They are shown wearing episcopal vestments.  Christ is standing in the center looking at His mother.  He is holding a small child clothed in white representing the soul of the Virgin Mary.  With His golden garments, the angel above His head and the mandorla surrounding Him reflects Christ in all of His divine glory.   Above Christ the gates of Heaven are standing wide open waiting to receive their Queen.

Thank you for the $136 collected in the second collection last week. We’ve collected $717 towards the goal of $950 for the replacement of Fr. Sid’s white vestments. We will continue the 2nd collection to help defray the cost of the vestments & other church expenses.
