The Official Icon of St. Archdeacon Habib Girgis

Our iconographer Ashraf Fayek has finalised the outline of the official icon of St. Archdeacon Habib Girgis today. It is now in the process of the placing of the gold leafing. That's a very exciting project and I am looking forward to the finished product! One of two originals will be presented to His Holiness Pope Tawadros II on 14 January at the Patriarchate in Cairo, Egypt. The second original will be displayed at the Diocese of Melbourne Headquarters as a source of blessing and inspiration.

There will be a limited special edition of this icon available after the originals are completed. It you are interested to purchase one of these special editions a webpage will be available soon to register your interest.

Our Theological College in Melbourne which is a College of The University of Divinity is in need of your financial support in order for it to expand and continue to offer more academic awards in the future and to expand our library and faculty. I hope that this small project of this unique icon, that has great significance for us will raise awareness of the unique and vital work ofSt. Athanasius Coptic Orthodox Theological College.

More to come soon.

May God bless.
