Iconography Report Annual Meeting January 2006

by Alexandria Lukashonak

Icon Report for Church School Students (Jan. 2005 through Dec. 2005)

The following icons were presented and explained:

January - St. John the Forerunner
February - Prophet Elijah
March - St. Seraphim of Sarov
April - Great Lent - no lesson due to shorter classes
May - Sts. Peter and Paul
Summer break
Oct. - Three Handed Icon of the Mother of God
Nov. - Apostle St. Andrew the first-called
Dec. - St. Spiridon was planned but not presented due to Christmas program; it will be included in 2006.

When presenting the icons, I always try to give the younger children an opportunity to look at them carefully and to touch or ask any questions they may have. I also stress the importance of icons in their homes and the proper way to handle and treat them. I also invite them to bring in an icon from home for a "show and tell."

A reminder: There is a file cabinet in the office with a collection of paper icons and an index that can be used by anyone. I only ask that, if an icon or lesson is the last one in a particular folder, that a copy be made and the file not left empty.

Any suggestions are always welcome - from parents, teachers or children.
