The Wonderworking Hawaiian-Iveron Icon of the Mother of God Visits Youngstown, Ohio
On Wednesday evening October 11, the Myrrh-Streaming Hawaiian-Iveron Icon of the Holy Mother of God visited Nativity of Christ Church in Youngstown, Ohio. A moleben was led by parish rector, Priest Michael Lillie. Fr.
