The St. George Serbian Orthodox Church in North Canton, Ohio had a special visit on Thursday, October 6th when the Wonderworking and Myrrh-streaming "Hawaiian" Iveron Icon made a visit en route to Pennsylvania. Though the visit was made in the middle of a work day one pulling up to the church and seeing all the cars would have thought it was Pascha. In fact, Reader Nektarios, the caretaker of the icon, in his address to the faithful after the service noted the miracles that have occurred before this icon and the many faithful, an estimated quarter of a million, who have venerated it over the course of a few years. "And everywhere we go," he added, "the churches are filled as if it were Pascha".
