Shrine and icons dedicated at St. Mary’s

Pentecost Sunday, May 19, was cause for much celebration at St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church of Marblehead. After the mass celebrating the Feast of Pentecost, the sanctuary’s four new icons were blessed and then the congregation processed to the the consecration of the Shrine of the Dormition of The Theotokos, which is housed in the lakeside gazebo behind the church. St. Mary’s Very Rev. Dr. Bryan Eyman led the blessings and was joined by guest Father Deacon Michael Lee of the Byzantine Catholic Cultural Center in Cleveland.


The four new icons honor The Call of Saint Andrew, The Myrrh Bearing Women, The Martyred Byzantine Catholic Bishops, and The Dormition of the Theotokos (Mary).

St. Mary’s is at 506 E. Main, Marblehead, adjacent to the Marblehead Lighthouse. The phone number of the rectory is 419-798-5131.
