St. Nicholas Patron of Mariners

When the icon was dedicated, from the iconographer's statement, "For those in Pomeroy, or In Ohio, this is your Holy River. The Baptism of Christ, its tension of death and life, of calm and the storm, flows into all that you do. As St. Nicholas, the Patron saint of Mariners, became a sign of Christ’s friendship and love in Myra (a Greek port town) may you too be a sign to those who work on, play, fish and live near these waters.”
