Work before Christmas on the Iconostasis - 12/24/15

In the days leading up to Christmas, Joe Uliase restored the decorative borders of the icons on our church's iconostasis, or icon screen in front of the altar. The original work had been done in the 1960s and was definitely in need of fresh attention. The result is glowing.

You can also see parishioners at work arranging the multitude of Christmas flowers for the feast. And lastly, Joe has been cleaning our large Crufixion icon, or Golgotha. You can see the brilliant colors again in the Virgin Mary and Saint John, while the Cross still has to be done.
