Two Christian churches in Potsdam celebrated the Feast Day of Epiphany on Jan. 6. Fr. Peter Irfan, acting rector of St. Olympia Orthodox Church, and Fr. Christopher Brown, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church of Potsdam, joined outside Trinity Church on Fall Island to celebrate together with a blessing of the waters service. Members of both parishes, ranging from 5 to 80 years of age, braved the cold and wind on the banks of the Raquette River on Fall Island to participate in the commemoration of the day that Jesus Christ was baptized in the Jordan River.
