Great Blessing of Water

On Holy Theophany, the faithful gathered to commemorate Christ's baptism in the Jordan River and the revelation of the Holy Trinity. We served the Great Blessing of Water, a sacred rite of the Church which extends to us the blessing of the water sanctified by the Lord's entrance into the Jordan. We rejoice in this holy feast which brings about our renewal, regeneration, and santification. We send up glory, honor, and worship to our true God Who has revealed Himself to us!

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.”
