Help show our history by making an art work submission
Often referred to as " The Greek Landing of 1768" for the New Smyrna Colony in Florida, help us paint an iconic
representation of the martyrs who crossed the Atlantic Ocean with the hope of having the legal rights to be Christian and to give their land over to their children as an inheritance to live out their faith. In New Smyrna, the arrivals some murdered on the spot, before they got on the 7 boats, as the bishop and priest that were to come with them, and then on Transfiguration Day when they made the journey to St. Augustine, with the hope the Spanish landlords would do better for them then the English in their faith the Mother of God had protected them to come and build a church and community in America, that then in 1776 would become the United States.
It is important to greet the travelers to Flagler County, (historic St. Augustine), to know they will walk on grounds sanctified by the blood of these martyrs who yet cry out for their souls to be acknowledged and prayers made in remembrance of their sacrifice. It is for them and for us and for what it means for all of us to change, transfigure with the Grace of God and our inheritance to go the only preordained route we were created to go, to the "King's Highway" the glory road to heaven.
Submissions are welcomed in telling the stories in our up coming film making. Mother Elizabeth (Carol Bacha), Director Christmas Monastery School of Music and the Sacred and Creative Arts, an outreach ministry of New Tikhvin Skete of the Holy Mother of God, 26 Poppy Lane, Palm Coast, Florida 32164
