HomeOur ParishCathedral Tour › Altar Icons

 

 

Two icons were commissioned and installed on either side of the sanctuary as part of the 2016 restoration.

One icon depicting the Baptism of Jesus by St. John the Baptist is on the wall near the Baptismal Font and the second icon is on the wall directly opposite this icon near the ambo. The icon by the ambo features the Blessed Virgin hold the child Jesus and flanked by the Patroness of our parish, St. Agnes, along with St. Catherine of Alexandria. Like St. Agnes, St. Catherine was martyred for her faith at a young age. St. Catherine is especially revered by the Eastern Church and being depicted with St. Agnes in this icon reminds us of our unity with the Churches of the Eastern Rite.

George Filippakis, a gifted artist who specializes in Byzantine iconography, is the iconographer of these icons.
