10:05 AM

On June 22, 2013,the miraculous Kursk-Root Icon of the Mother of God first visited, the parish of St. Patriarch Tikhon, New Martyrs and Confessors in Waterloo, Ontario.

The church was very crowded on this day as many people from our parish and from other Orthodox parishes of the city came to participate in Moleben and Akafist that has been served in front of the Icon. Many parishioners could not hide their tears of joy, as they were so happy to see the Icon in our small temple. After the service, Fr. Nikolay, the keeper of the Icons, told us about his visit to Russia with the Icon and how thousands of people spent hours just to kiss the Icon and how we are lucky in the Diaspora, to see and pray in front of this Shrine way more often. Our entire parish hopes and pray that in the future we would be made ​​worthy of hosting this great Shrine
