This is the site of the first Orthodox seminary in North America. St. Alexis Toth served this church for a time.

The myrrhstreaming icon of St Anna is from the parish of our Lady (Joy of All Who Sorrow) in Philadelphia, PA. Their website is here. The rector of the parish, Archim. Afanassy has had a particular devotion to St Anna stemming from her miraculous help in surviving a childhood accident. I have had the opportunity to venerate this icon when it made a visit to the Holy Virgin Cathedral in San Francisco earlier this year.

Father David, your blessings. Thank you for this info. I am so glad you provided us with it. All I can say: Amazing icon, church and priest. :)

No one has mentioned the myrrh streaming icon of the Theotokos in Chicago - can anyone tell me about that? My husband has agreed to take me on a pilgrimage for my 30th birthday, which is next year!

The website of St. Nicholas' Church in Chicago has a page about the icon, which mentions its history. I found another page which has a photograph of the icon.

In Christ,
Michael

Hi

 

Would anyone know some more information about the Icon of Panagia that teared, I think about 1960.

 

Do the owners still have it?

 

I think its Antonia and Peter Koulis.  I cant seem to actually see the icons in the church very clearly.

 

Thanks

Re Holy Places in North America: No one has yet mentioned Spruce Island and the hermitage of St. Herman near Kodiak Alaska!

Those weeping icons are enshrined at St Paul's Cathedral Greek Orthodox Church in Hempstead, Ny.  St. Paul's used to be my home parish before I moved away from the area, its one of the largest Orthodox Church's in North America. They have been housed at the church since 1960 when they were brought over by Archbishop Iakovos as they shed tears. The initial icon beloned to Mrs. Catsounis and a few days later her relatives the Koulis family also had an icon that began to tear.They still work miracles.

It also houses an icon that teared of St Nicholas in 2008, with a cool video:

The initial icons of the Theotokos was the reason of naming the Greek Orthodox parish in Island Park NY,  "Panagia Church" which was found in the 1980's (The Catsounis settled in Island Park and the neighboring village is Oceanside where Koulis lived, the church serves the people in those communities):
