In 1977 the Parish commissioned Mr. Theodore Baran to write the main Icon “Assumption of the Holy Mother of God” located in the sanctuary, and supported on either side by a Nativity Icon and Annunciation Icon. Symbols on the upper two side walls along with an ornamental border completed the iconography in the sanctuary. The total cost for all this iconography was $3500. These Icons were initially done on canvas with oil paint at the residence of Mr. Baran. Then brought to the church and with scaffolding and ladders were affixed and glued to the sanctuary wall with the help of a few Parishioners. To emphasize the holiness and beauty of the sanctuary 24k Gold Leaf was also used.
