St. Herman's Tour

It was a great learning experience as the Society toured St. Herman's Orthodox Church in Woodbury this past Thursday evening. Society member, Darya Carney, presented the history of the church building (the former Woodbury United Brethren Church) and the history of the Orthodox Church. She related the meaning of many items in the church and the stories of the various icons painted by Darya. The group gained a great knowledge of the Orthodox faith and many questions followed the presentation. The church has done an amazing job at restoration and continues to work on the project. Thank you to St. Herman's for sharing yourselves and the historical background of this church with us!!
