One of the world’s foremost living iconographers, Vlasios Tsotsonis of Greece has been commissioned by The congregation at the Basilica of St. Mary. Like many Antiochian Orthodox congregations, a predominantly Arab American basilica paints an art form which is a testament to faith and tradition, and an integral part of church services.
