Father Alexis and the Holy Ikons

Father Alexis Raphael recently had a successful exhibition of wood-mounted ikon prints that he made at St Mary Magdalen’s Church, Bailgate, Lincoln. Originally scheduled from 24-31 March, it was extended until 6 April.  The exhibition provided numerous opportunities for him to explain the spiritual significance of holy ikons, their place in Orthodox worship and other aspects of the  Orthodox faith. On Saturday, 21 April, some of his icons were used at an ecumenical Taizé service in Lincoln and he has also been invited to give a talk about ikons  to primary school children in Uphill Lincoln next month.
