The icon for the front of the altar at St. Paul’s has been completed by the iconographer Karsten Boyer. This icon was purchased with memorial funds given in loving memory of our former pastor, the Archpriest Theodore Mikovich.
Depicted in the icon with the Lord Jesus are the five saints whose relics are inside the altar (which were all acquired by Fr. Ted during his pastorate), plus one whose relic is outside the altar for veneration (St. Raphael).
Left to right, the images are: St. Joseph the Betrothed, St. Raphael of Brooklyn, the Apostle Paul, Christ the Great High Priest, St. Cassian of Imola, St. Theodore the General, and St. Anna the Ancestor of God.
We are grateful to Karsten for his fine work, as well as to Kh. Joanne and the entire Mikovich family for their blessing and contributions toward this project, and finally to all who gave in memory of our dear Fr. Ted. May his memory be eternal!
