Please join us for an opening reception for the exhibit “Praying with Icons,” installed in the David Allan Hubbard Library, on Thursday, March 22, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
The exhibition—which will run from March 5 until April 28—is designed to lead viewers through both past and present use of icons in divine liturgy as well as personal devotion within the Orthodox tradition. Themes include Christ and the Mother of God, feast days, and the saints.
The reception will include liturgical chanting selections, as well as a lecture at 5:00 p.m.: “I Venerate the Icon, I Worship the Prototype,” delivered by Rev. Fr. Patrick O’Grady, pastor of St. Peter the Apostle Antiochan Orthodox Church in Pomona, California.
All are welcome to this free event presented by the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts, with the blessing of Archbishop Joseph (Al-Zehlaoui) of the Antiochian Diocese of Los Angeles and the West.
