On Nov 3rd 2018, with the Blessing of our Ruling Hierarch, His Eminence Metropolitan Antony, St. Michael Ukrainian Orthodox Church, 74 Harris Ave, Woonsocket RI hosted the Wonder-working Icon of the Mother of God, otherwise known as – “The Crying Icon of Taylor, PA”. Saturday at 10 AM St. Michael was filled with clergy and faithful anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Icon. As Father Mark Leasure, from St. George Parish in Taylor, walked through the doors of the Church bringing the Holy Icon into the midst of clergy and laity the atmosphere immediately changed. The strong fragrance of myrrh filled the senses of the faithful as the St. Michael choir sang praises to the Mother of God.
