An iconography project which began in St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, Winnipeg, Canada, has produced remarkable results.

The project began with the installation of a huge icon of the 12 apostles going to receive Holy Communion. Placed on the two back walls high up, the icon draws the eye to the altar and was completed last year by Romanian-born iconographer Florin Vlad.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
