Ohio River blessed

The Ohio River received a blessing during a service Sunday afternoon held at the Steubenville afternoon and officiated by from left: the Rev. Matthew Moore of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Steubenville, the Rev. Andrew Nelko of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Weirton and the Rev. Michael Ziebarth of the Orthodox Church of the Life-Giving Fountain in Martins Ferry. The three clergy also tossed crosses formed from frozen holy water into the river in observance of the Feast of Holy Theophany, an annual remembrance of the baptism of Christ on the Jordan River.
