Greek Orthodox offer icon electronic card service

Posted: Friday, January 04, 2002

NEW YORK (AP) -- 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.

The Department of Internet Ministries runs the program.
