Great Blessing of Water at Theophany - St Nicholas, Sandy Lake, Manitoba

January 19, 2019

On the feast of Theophany (OS) the Archpriest Gregory Scratch served the Great Blessing of Waters at St Nicholas Orthodox Church in Sandy Lake Manitoba (est. 1905) and blessed the their lake.

This has become a community event that brings out many of Sandy Lake's residents (even in -25 weather!) and speaks to the importance the lake has in the community and their trust in the Lord's saving work in creation.
