Archon Damianakis leads Lenten Retreat on Iconography

On March 23-25, 2018, Archon Elias Damianakis of New Port Richey, Florida led a Lenten Retreat for 15 students at Hellenic College Holy Cross, aimed at promoting the art of iconography. Archon Damianakis, a professional iconographer himself, emphasized the importance of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on the development of Christian Art, Orthodox Iconography, and the Fine Arts in general during a casual discussion.

Students of various Greek, Russian and Coptic Orthodox jurisdictions participated, including several clergy children from surrounding area parishes. The students completed an icon of the Theotokos in honor of the Annunciation.
