River Blessing in West Virginia
The annual river blessing of the Monongahela River took place in Fairmont, West Virginia on Saturday, January 19, the Feast of Theophany in the Holy Orthodox Church. The river blessing was conducted under the auspices of the Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church of Fairmont. Many thanks to Sonia Janson for creating the lovely ice cross for the service. Father Rodney Torbic and the faithful from this Mission parish gather at the river each year for this service of Christian joy and renewal.
