When you enter the Church, it is customary to venerate (kiss) the holy icons. Think of it as greeting our Lord and his Mother and the patron saint of the church as you enter into God's home. Usually there are icons in the narthex and/or at the entrance of the nave, and many churches have icon stands at the front near the iconostasion as well. Non-Orthodox newcomers to the Church are sometimes confused or perplexed about venerating icons and it helps to understand that we worship God alone and we honor the Mary and the saints whose lives are beacons of the light of Christ .
In a very traditional church, an icon will be on a stand at the entrance or in the center of the nave; this icon is venerated first. Often this set of icons--103 Byzantine Icons with Case-- is placed on a podium or proskinitaria in your church narthex so that the faithful will be able to "read" the icon and know which feastday is being celebrated.
When venerating an icon, it is appropriate to kiss the hand or feet of Christ and his saints showing the proper respect. If wearing lipstick or lip balm/gloss, please be careful not to get it on the icon.
