The “Kursk-Root” Icon Visits Parishes of the Western American Diocese

“The “Kursk-Root” Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos arrived in the Western American Diocese for the Council of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, which convened from the 23 to the 30 of June this year.

While visiting the parishes of our diocese, the holy icon will remain within the borders of the Western American Diocese through the Feast of the Transfiguration, after which the icon will return to New York accompanied by her guardian, newly-consecrated Bishop Nicholas of Manhatten.

REMINDER: all of those charged with care of the “Kursk-Root” Icon while she is in the Western American Diocese must conform to the following regulations: “Kursk-Root Icon Rules “.
