During the weekend of November 15th-17th, St. George Orthodox church hosted the singing trio “Eikona” of Colorado.  On Friday evening, the parish gathered in the Fellowship Hall for an Advent Lenten meal followed by Eikona chanting the Paraclesis service in church.  After the service had concluded, the young adults spontaneously gathered with Eikona to chant a perennial favorite hymn from Camp Transfiguration entitled “O Pure Virgin” by St. Nektarios of Aegina.  Many parishioners stayed in church to participate in this impromptu, but prayerful and heartfelt moment led by the young people of the parish.  On Saturday, Eikona led separate age-based choir workshops for children and teens.  Additionally, during the luncheon Eikona presented a talk titled, “Understanding Orthodox Liturgical Services.”  They also spoke about the importance of prayer in the home and taught participants how to construct a prayer corner at home.  Eikona also chanted the Great Vespers on Saturday evening as well as the Orthros and Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning.  The entire weekend of activities was sponsored by the Mentoring Program at St. George Orthodox church as part of the investment in developing the beautiful voices of our children, teens, and young adults.  For more information about upcoming Mentoring Program events please visit http://bit.ly/StGeorgeEvents
