Blessing Holy Water for the Great Feast of Theophany

On January 6, the Great Feast of Theophany, we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord.  Traditionally, the Great Blessing of Water is celebrated in conjunction with the feast day.  This year, Father Ned Lunich blessed water after the Divine Liturgy on Sunday, January 8, 2017 -- the post-feast of Theophany -- as we sang the festal troparion:  "When Thou, O Lord, was baptized in the Jordan, the worship of the Trinity was made manifest!"  Father Ned then blessed the church and the faithful with the sprinkling of holy water.
