In November, our iconographer Ivan Rumiantsev will begin work on the second phase of new icons in the nave (main part) of the Church: a larger Holy Trinity (Three Visitors) icon for the East wall behind the Altar, and four historical icons for the back (West) wall - the First Ecumenical Council (325), the Exaltation of the Cross (337), the Restoration of Icons (843), and the Baptism of Rus (988). Then he will begin work on large frescos for the upper portions of the side walls to be completed by April 1, as follows from back to front: South Side - the Flight to Egypt (Matt. 2), the Wedding at Cana (Jn. 2), the Feeding of the Five Thousand (Jn. 6), and the Crucifixion of Christ; North Side - the Baptism of Christ (Theophany), Jesus and the Samaritan Woman at the Well (Jn. 4), the Transfiguration of Christ, and the Miraculous Catch of 153 Fish (Jn. 21). Our Church iconography is part and parcel of the mission of the Church as a place of transformation in the grace of God in Christ Jesus our Lord, the Kingdom of God made manifest in the power of the Holy Spirit.
