Icon of St. Hermione

Inspired By

St. Hermione

A first century Saint and a daughter of St. Phillip the Deacon. After perfecting the art of medical healing, St. Hermione devoted herself to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and prayer, offering healing of the “whole person”.

She eventually established a home in Ephesus that included a medical clinic. There, she offered spiritual and physical healing as well as housing for the poor and homeless.
