Harrisburg Area Churches Bless Susquehanna for Theophany - 01/23/2022
On Sunday, January 23rd the Orthodox parishes of Greater Harrisburg gathered at City Island Park for the 13th Annual Pan-Orthodox Great Blessing of the Susquehanna. After missing last year due to the pandemic, it was especially nice to renew this annual tradition, in which we ask the Lord to bless the waters, and to heal us and our community!
Participating were clergy and faithful from the following parishes:
• Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church (OCA) in Harrisburg
• Holy Apostles Orthodox Church (OCA) in Mechanicsburg
• Holy Resurrection of Christ Orthodox Church (SER) in Lebanon
• Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral (GOA) in Camp Hill
• St. Nicholas Orthodox Church (SER) in Oberlin
Following the River Blessing, the clergy and faithful gathered at Holy Trinity Cathedral for a delicious luncheon and wonderful fellowship. Glory to God for all things!
