Orthodoxy Sunday at St. Innocent - 03/20/16

On the first Sunday of Great Lent, March 20, 2016, we had a grand celebration of the "Triumph of Orthodoxy" or "Orthodoxy Sunday." At the end of the Liturgy, we commemorated the victory of icons over those who tried to abolish them, by processing around the perimeter of our temple, in which our numerous children participated, with each person carrying an icon. We stopped at each side while there was a short prayer and hymn, and concluded with a recitation of the "Synodicon" and the Great Prokeimenon.
