Buffalo, NY: The Kursk Root Icon visited Sts. Theodore Church

On Monday, January 24, the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God visited Niagara Falls in New York, on the border with Canada. There, diocesan secretary Archpriest Serge Lukianov blessed the falls with the holy icon.

The Icon then traveled to the Church of St. Theodore Tyro and St. Theodore Stratelates in Buffalo, NY. The Icon was greeted by the parish clergy: rector Priest Peter Jackson and Priest Peter Irfan. Fr. Serge led the moleben and akathist, co-served by the above-mentioned clergy.

Upon completion of the moleben, Fr. Serge delivered a sermon on the history and miracles of the Kursk Root Icon, and presented the parish with a copy of the Icon. A dinner was then served in the parish hall, during which a photomontage of the Icon’s return to Russia in 2009 was shown.
