Blessing the waters

| January 27, 2022 1:00 AM

Father Paul Moses Jaroslaw, the priest overseeing the Moses Lake Orthodox Fellowship, prepares to hurl a cross into the frigid waters of Moses Lake on Saturday as part of the Orthodox Church’s annual blessing of the waters ceremony. The blessing is normally done on Jan. 6 on Epiphany, the day marking Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River, but was delayed this year because of snow, cold and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
