ForeFeast of the Nativity of Christ
The three parishes of St. John the Baptist, Christ the Savior and Holy Trinity will join together for the Blessing of the Waters at the Spokane River on the feast of Theophany, Sunday, January 6, 2013 at 1:30 PM. ”We will meet on the north side of the river on Upriver Drive, 1.2 miles west of Argonne Road. (Roughly 7100 E. Upriver Drive – Milepost 16 on the Centennial Trail – look for the park benches overlooking the river.) There is plenty of parking and easy access to the river, so dress warmly and come help extend the blessing of the Jordan to our own part of God’s creation!” Per St John’s Bulletin.
