Panagitsa Tribute

Panagitsa Tribute


Thousands watched in shock as video coverage spread through the internet of the fire that consumed the Kimisis Tis Theotokou Greek Orthodox Church in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Flames billowed out of the broken windows, keeping everyone at bay. It was a horrific sight.

The image of a burnt frame was all I knew until I came across this video by Siounis Photo and Video. They created a tribute video, a compilation of sacraments that were held in the beautiful church so the world could see what they lost. Please keep them in your prayers as they begin their work to rebuild this magnificent church.

Presvytera Vassi Haros

Presvytera Vassi Makris Haros is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Art, Architecture & Planning and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. She is the owner, designer and photographer of V’s Cardbox, a greeting card company featuring cards with an Orthodox voice. She is married to Fr. Athanasios C Haros, a priest in the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta.

After posting several of her fasting dinners on Facebook, hoping to encourage her friends to keep the fast, she received enough requests for recipes that she has started a blog titled In Service and Love. She strongly feels that experiencing the Orthodox Faith through the church’s cyclical calendar of feasts and fasts is a gift that is too often overlooked.
