Myrrh Streaming Icon of the Panagia Portaitissa of Iveron
All are invited to the Church of the Holy Cross here in Belmont to welcome the Myrrh Streaming Icon of the Panagia Portaitissa of Iveron on Friday, September 29 at 7 PM, and to participate in a Paraclesis or Supplication service.  Everyone will have the opportunity to venerate the icon and receive anointing with the miraculous myrrh that streams from her image. 
Join us this Tuesdays at 10 AM as we begin our new Bible Studies in the Contos Library.  The Holy Scriptures, both the Old and New Testament, are studied and discussed with reference to the Holy Fathers of our Orthodox Tradition and with the practical application to our daily lives and the challenge of contemporary issues. Konstantine Salmas is the instructor bringing a fresh perspective and understanding to our Scriptural tradition.

We invite you to also join us on Wednesdays at 7 PM in the Contos Library for a new semester of the Studies in Faith Classes. The teachings of the Holy Fathers of the Church regarding contemporary moral issues and dilemmas are throughly studied and discussed in an open and refreshing way while at the same time understanding the mind of the Holy Fathers and why the Church’s teaching are timeless and relevant.  Konstantine Salmas is the instructor with guest presenters offering presentation throughout the year.
