THEOPHANY 2020: Great Sanctification of Water

We bless water every year on the feast of the Theophany to commemorate our Lord's baptism in the Jordan, the revelation of the Holy Trinity, and the renewal of our own baptism.  Father then brings the newly-blessed Jordan water to parishioners' homes over the course of the month for a special house blessing.
