Icons and Iconography Workshop
Icons are at the center of Byzantine worship, providing windows into the mysteries of the incarnation, heaven and the redemption of man. As the Fathers of the Second Ecumenical Council of Nicaea declared: "Images of Christ, of his Virgin Mother and of other saints should be made and preserved. Due honor and veneration should be given to them. . . . By kissing images, uncovering our heads or kneeling before them, we adore Christ and venerate his saints whose likeness they represent."
Several talented iconographers have contributed to the iconography of St. George Church, especially Dimitrios Mourlas and his Byzantine Iconography Workshop in Greece, represented in the U.S. by George Panagiotopoulos, who wrote the icons in our iconastasis and the Pantocrater installed in July 2006.
