Icon of Christ’s 27 Holy Martyrs and Icon of Blessed Priest & Martyr Emilian Kowcz
On June 27, 2001, Pope John Paul II beautified the Holy Martyrs of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) of the 20th Century.
The Icon of Christ’s 27 Holy Martyrs, along with the Icon of Blessed Priest and Martyr Emilian Kowcz, was commissioned for St. George’s Ukrainian Greek Catholic Cathedral in 2013. The Icons were written by Anna Mycyk, a parishioner of St. George’s Cathedral, and sponsored by the Worobetz Foundation and the UCBC-Bishop Roborecki Branch of St. George’s Cathedral. The Icons will be blessed on Sunday, December 3rd, after the 10:00 a.m. Divine Liturgy and installed above the two new corner side altars.

As well, on this Sunday, December 3rd, St. George’s Cathedral will welcome the Icon of the Mother of God of Zarvanytsia from Ukraine, donated by the Krushelnytskyy family.
We will also be blessing this Icon of the Mother of God of Zarvanytsia after the Divine Liturgy.
