Epiphany 2010 in Astoria
1 of 7
Faithful are seen at Astoria Park during a ceremony for the annual blessing of the waters on the feast of Epiphany.
Faithful in Astoria braved the cold weather to participate in the traditional litany following the Epiphany liturgy. Parishioners left St. Catherine's Church after the liturgy and headed to nearby Astoria Park, where the waters of the East River were blessed during a ceremony headed by St. Demetrios Cathedral Dean V. Rev. Apostolos Koufalakis.
