Pictures of our Churches

Postby Serafima » Mon Sep 07, 2009 3:58 am

Let's share with pictures of the churches we are going to. I have some pictures of St.Nicholas Cathedral in New York.

Image

This is the first Saturday after Easter last year. We had a religious procession with the icon "Kurskaya Korennaya" in Manhattan, first one in history of both parts of our Church.

This is how it looks from outside

I'll try to find some more pictures :roll: :)

Matusya, unfortunately its the best pictures of our church i have right now. I don't feel comfortable taking pictures in church. And for some reason they appear to have quite poor quality. :pardon:

This is our church:

This is what it looks like inside (I think this picture was taken on Christmas Eve, right before Vigil):

This is a recent picture, from Transfiguration. The bishop was there!

I didn't take any of the pictures though. And I think maybe they turn out too big, so I'm sorry for that--maybe I should just give links?

This is our chapel (baptismal) of St. Nicholas. It is located on the warm hydrogen sulfide source in our village. On Thursdays the priest reads the Akathist to St Nicholas. And every year, on January 19, on the feast of Epiphany, people come here for the Great blessing of water.
There have been cases where adults were baptized.
