Hawaiian Iveron Icon visits May 29, 2022

We are, as always, so honoured to have Deacon Nectarios Yangson, with the myrrh-streaming Hawaiian-Iveron Icon of the Mother of God, visit the Iveron Monastery.  Fr. Nectarios was nearby in PA and made a quick round trip to bless us with the icon.  We read the akathist to the Iveron Mother of God and were then anointed with Holy Myrrh.

Hawaiian Iveron Icon visits September 9, 2021

We were so honoured to have Deacon Nectarios Yangson, with the myrrh-streaming Hawaiian-Iveron Icon of the Mother of God, visit the Iveron Monastery.

Liturgy was celebrated by Fr. Dmitry Don in the Iveron house chapel. After the liturgy a molieben with an Akathist was served. All then were anointed with the myrrh from the holy icon , which streamed in abundence.

Fr.Nectarios then proceded to bless the property of our new monastery with the holy icon.

We are so grateful to Fr.Nectarios to have visited us, especially during these times. The visit of the Holy Mother of God was a great source of comfort and encouragement for us.
