BLESS­ING THE RIO GRANDE

Albuquerque Journal - - METRO & NM -

The Rev. Niko­lay Miletkov of All Saints of North Amer­ica Ortho­dox Church, right, blesses the Rio Grande by throw­ing a large cross into its waters as parish­ioner Vladimir Kr­cal pre­pares to re­trieve it. The cer­e­mony, which in­cludes a pro­ces­sion to the river, marks the Sunday of Theo­phany and com­mem­o­rates the bap­tism of Christ in the Jor­dan River.
