In Odessa were held the rites of consecration of water and Epiphany swimming. Photo

January 19, 2015 within the celebration of Epiphany in the Patriarchal Holy Dormition Monastery in Odessa was held Divine Liturgy. Since the night Odessites have been coming to the divine service and consecrated water.

This day on the beaches of Odessa is traditionally held a citywide celebration of the Epiphany. Epiphany swimming began on the night of 18 to 19 January. With the blessing of Metropolitan of Odessa and Izmail Agafangel the water was consecrated before ones started to swim.

For the convenience of the citizens of Odessa on the beaches were installed tents with heating, that gives an opportunity to dress up and drink a cup of hot tea after swimming in cold water.
