We have the honor and pleasure to announce that the 7 Iconographies that are going to be placed at the naïve in the arches above the double entrance door, the 2 single doors, the 3 windows and on top of the storage cabinet door are in progress by our Cathedral’s Iconographer, Laurence Manos.
Our Iconographer sent us 3 photos of his progressive work so that we may also see the iconographic beauty that will beautify our most beloved Annunciation Cathedral here in the heart of Detroit. May God bless him for his God-pleasing work and we hope to see more updates and see the 7 Icons placed at the Annunciation Cathedral according his schedule by the end of October, 2023.
We are all so excited to see much more of his talented work of faith in colors.
