The joyous Winter Pascha continues with the Feast of Theophany (Epiphany) during which we commemorate the Baptism of our Lord Jesus Christ and its place in the story of our salvation. Two of the beloved features of this particular Church Feast are the Great Blessing of Waters (both indoors and outdoors) and the Blessing of Homes. Every parishioner and friend of the parish is invited to participate in these powerful prayers of sanctification and consecration to God.
