A six-week project began on May 13, 2013 with the construction of scaffolding reaching into the dome of St. John of Damascus Church in Poway, California. Over the weeks, a new icon of the Pantocrator was installed in the center dome, surrounding by seraphim and cherubim. Just below the dome, on the supporting walls, a ring of Prophets from the Old Testament was installed. The scaffolding was taken down on June 28, 2013 and the parish is now inspired by the fruits of their labors. The next phase will be to install a ring of sixteen medallions below the Prophets, each depicting a saint. The project is done to the glory of God and we hope and pray that future generations will come to gaze upon heavenly ranks, the Pantocrator and the spirit-filled Saints and be brought closer to God.
