Greetings in the Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and Holy St. Sava!
Opening Day 2015 was a memorable one for our students. The new school year brings a record number of students enrolled in the Academy. The school year begins with 103 students, breaking a previous record of 100 students. Just prior to the students attending the Service of the Invocation, I learned that our school community would experience another blessing. Arrangements were made for the arrival of the miraculous Hawaiian Myrrh-Streaming Iveron Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos. The students lined the center isle of the Cathedral to await the arrival of the Miraculous Icon. Upon the conclusion of the Invocation of the Holy Spirit, students had the opportunity to venerate the Icon and be anointed with the Holy Myrrh. V. Rev. Protopresbyter Fr. Darko Spasojevic and Rev. Fr. Dr. Vasilije Vranic then carried the Miraculous Icon from classroom to classroom. The students of the Academy had another once in a lifetime experience to experience the Icon in their classrooms.
