Theophany

On Sunday, January 6th, the faithful gathered to celebrate the Great Feast of Theophany, which commemorates the Lord's Baptism in the Jordan River and the manifestation of the Holy Trinity. On the eve, we served the Great Blessing of Water during the festal vigil.

Troparion - Tone 1

When Thou, O Lord, was baptized in the Jordan the worship of the Trinity was made manifest, for the voice of the Father bore witness to Thee and called Thee His beloved Son.  And the Spirit, in the form of a dove, confirmed the truthfulness of His word.  O Christ, our God, Who hast revealed Thyself and hast enlightened the world, glory to Thee!

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
