Blessing of Water

Blessing of Water - 01/05/2020

This weekend marked the Holy Theophany of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (Great Blessing of the Water). Water was blessed for the faithful to take home and distribute to family and friends. And when Jesus had been baptised, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased” Matthew 3:16-17
