Ascension of Our Lord Byzantine Catholic Church

Icon of the Ascension of Our Lord

Icon of the Ascension

Icons are a beautiful form of spiritual and artistic expression commonly found in eastern churches Each icon tells a story, through images, about important events in the bible and in the church.

The joyous icon above represents the feast day for which this parish is named - The Ascension of our Lord, Jesus Christ, into heaven - as told in the Book of Acts. In this image, Jesus' right hand is raised in blessing, and his left hand holds a scroll, reminding us of Jesus' role as teacher and that He is the ultimate source of knowledge.
