St. John Chrysostom Orthodox Church, in Springettsbury Township, will be holding an Open House on Sunday, March 12 from 2-4 pm to invite the public to see the completed iconography 20 years in the making.
In the Orthodox tradition, icons are picture Gospels and often called “windows into heaven.” Historically, the images communicated stories of the New Testament for the sake of those who couldn’t read or afford the Bible according the Rev. Peter Pier, pastor of the church said, in a 2007 story the York Daily Record published about the religious art.
One of the few iconographers living in the United States, artist Elias Katsaros, has worked on the project 20 years.
According to Rev. Pier, the project at St. John Chrysostom is a completion of Katsaros's life work, who specialized in the rebirth of the ancient Byzantine style of Iconography.
