With the start of Great Lent, the divine services with the reading of the Great Canon of St. Andrew of Crete were held in the Church of the Iveron Icon in Kailua, Hawaii (Western American Diocese). From Monday the 7th, until Thursday the 10th of March, the divine services were served in English and Slavonic by the parish Rector Priest Athanasius Kone and Archpriest Anatole V. Lyovin (Pastor Emeritus).
Parishioners and faithful from all over the island of Oahu gathered to pray at Grand Compline with the reading of the Canon.
The parish choir sang beautifully. The divine services were served under the auspicious of the Myrrh-Streaming Iveron Montreal “Hawaiian” Icon of the Mother of God, which the faithful had the opportunity to venerate.
