Peace be with you! 🕊


    May the Lord bestow upon each and every one of you His divine grace and mercy for your donations and offerings to the Church of the Iveron Icon of the Mother of God in Toronto at this difficult time. I am grateful for your contributions and sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Please know that your names are mentioned in every liturgy and prayer. There have been many attempts to impede and halt church services but we continue to worship God and offer spiritual nourishment to our parish and community. Even though parishioners have not been able to physically attend mass and prayers during this difficult time of quarantine, church services have not stopped. Be assured that the Church of the Iveron Icon of the Mother of God in Toronto will without fail continue services and pray to the Lord for your salvation and collective wellbeing. I hope the time will come soon when we can once more worship together, in unity, and take part in Divine Mysteries.

    As you are aware, the Georgian church abroad is not only a place of worship but also a centre of flourishing Georgian culture outside of Georgia. As part of our Church in Toronto, we have a Sunday school, dance and music ensemble “Iveron”, and among other things, we teach and pass onto our immigrant kids the Georgian language, religion, history, geography, traditional crafts, and the wonderful ancient dancing and musical traditions. Apart from teaching, we also organize trips in nature, concerts and various events, all of which require our utmost effort and dedication to preserve and nourish the spirit of Christian Orthodoxy and Georgian language and culture in our community and among our youths. We consistently work hard to establish and expand this cultural presence as part of our Church. Since we are the only Georgian Church in Ontario, this is where the Georgian diaspora comes together.

    Today I would like to kindly remind you that the existence and the strength of our Church directly depends on your contributions. Those of you who have hope in our Lord and take to heart our Church and community’s well being, please consider donating through the various means available to you, including credit card, PayPal, and bank or Interac E-transfer.

  • The Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise The Expulsion of Adam and Eve from ParadiseThe Sunday of Forgiveness, the last of the preparatory Sundays before Great Lent, has two themes: it commemorates Adam’s expulsion from Paradise, and it accentuates our need for forgiveness. There are obvious reasons why these two things should be brought to our attention as we stand on the threshold of Great Lent. One of the primary images in the Triodion is that of the return to Paradise. Lent is a time when we weep with Adam and Eve before the closed gate of Eden, repenting with them for the sins that have deprived us of our free communion with God. But Lent is also a time when we are preparing to ...

  • 26 June 2015. Holy Father Metropolitan Antim the Iberian Metropolitan Antim was born around year 1650 in Georgia, a country named Iviria by the Romanians. Hence the name of Iberian. Antim's secular name was Andrew. Enslaved by the Turks, Andrew reached Constantinople, being redeemed - probably - by patriarch Dositheus of Jerusalem. He was tonsured as monk under the name of Antim. The future metropolitan came into Wallachia at the beginning of the rule of Constantin Brâncoveanu.In his new country Antim proved to be a prolific printer. In a stretch of 25 years more than 60 titles have appeared in the print shops that he led or established. His books were written in Romanian, Greek, Slavic, Arabic. A large part of these books were written or translated by Antim ...
