Blessing of Blackhawk Lake

Last Sunday, Epiphany Sunday, some of the faithful from St. Elizabeth Orthodox Church gathered at Blackhawk Lake to celebrate Theophany which commemorates the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan. Trekking along the park's frozen path in procession with cross and gospel, the ceremony culminated on the lake itself with the blessing of its waters through a large opening in the ice cut out in the shape of a cross.

Reading a gospel story and then a poem first recited in Jerusalem in the 7th Century, the community's pastor, Fr. Marc Boulos, blessed and then sprinkled the lake's waters on the small crowd huddled around the cross-shaped opening. "The baptism of Jesus," Boulos explained, "draws attention to Biblical accounts of God's struggle to safeguard life on earth, despite humanity's repeated miss-steps...the blessing is given as an expression of gratitude for life itself."
