Coast, FL: The Kursk Root Icon visited St. Nicholas Church
Wednesday, February 16, the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God
Nicholas Church in Palm Coast, FL. Before a large gathering of
the faithful, Eastern American Diocesan secretary Archpriest Serge
Lukianov, who was accompanying the Icon, served a moleben and
akathist in the church, co-served by Priest Alexiy Stennik (cleric
of the Diocese of St. Petersburg).
Upon completion of the moleben, Fr. Serge delivered a sermon to the
gathered faithful on the travels and miracles of the Kursk Icon, and
reminded them about the heavenly and never-ceasing intercessions of
the Theotokos for all mankind, and presented the parish an icon of
the Mother of God of the Sign – a blessing from Metropolitan
Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad.
The faithful prayed for a long time before the Icon, not wishing to
part ways with the grace-filled image of the Most Holy Theotokos.
