St Seraphim’s (FB) in Boise, Idaho will be celebrating the parish feast of St. Seraphim this weekend of August 4-5. During this weekend the Miracleworking and Myrrh-streaming Iveron Icon of the Mother of God from Hawaii will be visiting the parish. The services will be as follows:
3:00 p.m. Akathist to the Mother of God
6:00 p.m. Vigil
9:30 a.m. Liturgy
Molieben to St. Seraphim and the Mother of God

“The Icon has become a sources of numerous healings in recent years. First found to be giving myrrh in the home of an Orthodox Christian couple living in Hawaii in 2007, it was soon thereafter recognized by the Russian Orthodox Church as miraculous and genuine and worthy of all veneration. The Icon has been to nearly every state of the union, and has traveled to Canada, South America, Europe and Russia. We urge all pious Christians to come and see this incredible miracle from God!” (From a prior post-Thank you to Fr James from St Martins in Corvallis for this Information) More Info on the original Iveron Icon can be found here.
