Church offers e-mail icon cards

January 4, 2002 

NEW YORK — Orthodox Christians can send icon cards via e-mail for many occasions as part of a new service offered by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

More than 200 electronic cards are available to mark major feasts of the Orthodox Church: Lent, Holy Week, Easter, baptism and marriage.

The cards feature a picture of a saint, a brief description of the significance of the holiday or feast and the related saint for Orthodox Christians and a space to write a personalized greeting.
