Nicholasville, KY: The Kursk Root Icon visited St. Athanasius Church


On Tuesday, December 21, the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God visited St. Athanasius Church in Nicholasville, KY. Eastern American Diocesan secretary Archpriest Serge Lukianov led the moleben and akathist, co-served by rector Priest Justin Patterson, Priest George Wilson (rector of Panagia Greek Church in neighboring Lexington), and Hieromonk Alexander (Frizzell; cleric of Holy Cross Monastery.


Upon completion of the moleben, Fr. Serge presented Fr. Justin with a copy of the Kursk Icon with a commemorative plaque on behalf of the First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, in memory of the wonder-working icon’s visit to Nicholasville. Refreshments were then offered in the parish hall, and a photomontage of the wonderworking icon’s return to Russia in 2009 presented.
