Saint Innocent and the Aleut people



From Orthodox Christian Mission Center

A painting by Russian artist, Mikhail Shankov, showing Saint Innocent and the Aleut people sailing in a boat across icy waters in Alaska. The painting is called "Easter Procession of St Innokenty Veniaminov". Saint Innocent is a beloved Saint of the Orthodox Church who spent many years engulfing himself in the culture of the Alaskan people so that he could minister to them the love of Christ by incorporating the faith into their way of life. He translated the Bible and liturgical services into their language and served in many other ways throughout his ministry.
