Saint Paraskevi was finally beheaded, and she received the Crown of Martyrdom and joined her beloved Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in His Heavenly Kingdom in the Year 140.

As the sword was raised above her head, Saint Paraskevi held onto an old stone pillar. She grabbed it so tightly that her hands left imprints in the stone. The stone pillar is now half its original size as visitors to the Church of Saint Paraskevi would hack off bits of the stone to keep them as a Blessing.
