Our most recent Icons were installed in December 2017 and February 2018. These include Old Testament Scenes above the Iconostasis (Hospitality of Abraham, Moses at the Burning Bush, and Jacob's Ladder). Also in the east end of the temple are scenes of the Youths in the Fiery Furnace and Elijah Ascending to Heaven with his mantle given to Elisha, along with Christ as the Sower and the Good Shepherd. The Good Thief and the Icon of Abraham's Bosom are in an area for memorials. Under the balcony is the icon of the Dormition of the Theotokos, with events preceding and following it.

Behind our Altar in the East Apse is the Icon of the "Platytera" (The Mother of God shown as "more spacious than the heavens," as she carried the Uncontainable God, Christ in the Incarnation).

Note also the 4 Evangelists in the 4 corners who wrote the 4 Gospels. Other Apostles are shown in the rim arches, beginning with St. Peter and St. Paul.

Our iconographers write the icons on canvas pieces in their monastery, then glue them to the ceiling. They paint directly on the ceiling between the pieces for a seamless appearance.

Our iconostasis was made by the woodcarver Ivan Zografov in Bulgaria. Archdeacon John Timby installed it last November.

Our balcony is a favorite seating area for many with small children.
The view is great, and we have a “cry room” too with sound.
