Nativity of the Mother of God Orthodox Mission gets new Entrance gates
The Nativity of the Mother of God Orthodox Mission in Appleton, WI, was Blessed to have a new wrought-iron entrance gate to the backyard and grounds leading to the Orthodox Chapel of St Mary of Egypt. The black-and-gold locking gate has two opening halves, each weighing about 100 lbs. They were custom manufactured by Hansel Ornamental Iron in Appleton. One member attending the Mission said they reminded her of home in Kiev, Ukraine, which reportedly has much decorative wrought iron work adorning church grounds and public buildings.
