Who are we?
A Mission of Mercy to the World
The Orthodox Hawaiian Iveron Icon Association (OHIIA), was established in 2012 with a singular goal; to help in the mission of the Wonderworking Iveron Icon of the Mother of God of Hawaii.
This Holy Icon has changed the lives of countless individuals, through the Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the continued intercession of the Most holy Theotokos.
Our Foundation's secondary charge is to build a memorial shrine in Hawaii to the Mother of God of Iveron, to someday house this Wonderworking Icon, which at the moment, has no church to call her own.
The Story of the Wonderworking Myrrhstreaming Iveron Icon of Hawaii
In 2007, a great miracle was revealed to the Christian World, a humble image of the Virgin Mary began exuding myrrh in the home of an Orthodox Christian couple. After months of careful examination and investigation, Orthodox Church authorities declared this a miracle worthy of all veneration.
Our Foundation's Mission
“The Most Holy Mother of God prays for us ceaselessly. She is always visiting us. Whenever we turn to her in our heart, she is there. After the Lord, she is the greatest protection for mankind. How many churches there are in the world that are dedicated to the Most Holy Mother of God! How many healing springs where people are cured of their ailments have sprung up in places where the Most Holy Theotokos appeared and blessed those springs to heal both the sick and the healthy! She is constantly, by our side, and all too often we forget her.”
