Family of Eleven Baptized in Nova Scotia

June 12, 2021

Photos of the baptism by Fr David Edwards and Fr Alexander Treiger from St Vladimir Church in Halifax, of the eleven members of one family on Saturday 12 June at Pomquet Beach, near Goshen, Nova Scotia where the family lives.

The parish received written permission from Dr Robert Strang, Chief Medical Officer for Nova Scotia, to exceed the permitted outside gathering limit of ten persons. The twelfth person to be "dunked" was Father David, when he lost his balance in shifting sand and fell in and filled the inside of his waders with sea water which was supposed to remain on the outside of the waders. Lots and lots of fun!
