Blessing of Cherry Creek - 01/05/20

Here are the first few photos from the Blessing of Cherry Creek which occurred on the Eve of the Theophany of our Lord. Following the Divine Liturgy and a Vespers service at St. Tikhon Mission, clergy, parishoners and choir members went to the banks of Cherry Creek in Parker. While hymns were sung to recall the baptism of Christ in the river Jordan, a cross tied to a rope was thrown three times into the water.
