For nearly 50 years, artist Robert J. Andrews has devoted his life to creating magnificent mosaic icons in the Byzantine style for churches across the United States and the UK.  We will visit one of his beautiful master works, the Transfiguration of the Saviour Greek Orthodox Church in Lowell, MA. This church, which is affectionately called the “miniature San Marco’s of Venice”, is bedecked from floor to ceiling with mosaic icons from the hand of Andrews. Of special interest is the predominance of female saints! Father Tom will lead the tour of these iconic mosaics. Be prepared to be wowed!

After the tour, join us for a delicious lunch at one of Lowell’s best Greek restaurants, New Olympia, located at 453 Market St., Lowell.
