Patronal Festivals

1. THE CHURCH OF THE IVERON ICON OF THE HOLY THEOTOKOS

February 25 is the day of the translation of a copy of the Iveron icon to the monastery in Valdai. This copy was painted by an Athonite iconographer for the Iveron Monastery in Valdai, which is the exact copy of the one on Mount Athos.

May 6 is the day of the second uncovering of the copy. In 2012, the icon was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church with honor and celebration and was placed at the Novo-Devichi Convent, where it had been since 1648. During the soviet times, after the convent was closed, the holy icon was stored in the funds of the State Historical Museum.

October 26 is the day of solemn meeting, when the Iveron icon arrived in Moscow in 1648.
