St. George Byzantine Catholic Church will host an Iconography Workshop April 23-27 at the church at 720 Rural St. in Aurora.

This is an introduction to the liturgical art of the Christian East by iconographer Phil Zimmerman. The icon to be written is Mother of God of Tenderness.

Painting and presentations will be held each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Great artistic talent is not required and supplies are included in the $300 registration fee.

The registration deadline is Monday, April 16, but interested participants should register immediately as space is limited.

Registrants do not have to be parishioners of St. George. For more information or registration, call (630) 851-4002.

Icons are at the center of Byzantine worship, providing windows into the mysteries of the incarnation, heaven and the redemption of man. Visit www.stgeorgeaurora.org or www.facebook.com/StGeorgeAurora/.
