Blessing of the Waters Ceremony
Join the annual Epiphany Celebration and Blessing of the Waters Ceremony put on by St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church. Gather dockside with the St. Demetrious congregation to watch the Blessing of the Waters outside The Greek Mediterranean Steak & Seafood restaurant. The waters are blessed to protect those who sail on it and divers vie for a cross believed to bring special blessings for the rest of the year. A celebration in the restaurant with food and music and dancing follows the ceremony.
The public is welcome at all aspects of the Epiphany Celebration! If you are just interested in watching the Blessing of the Waters and Dive for the Cross outside, it is recommended you arrive at Ventura Harbor by 11:30 am.
Please call the church office at 805-482-1273 or visit www.saintdem.org for your boat to be blessed in the Harbor after the celebration or to inquire for more details.
