Blessing of the IU Jordan River 2018

Fr. Peter Jon Gillquist is joined by IU students and friends for a service of blessing on the waters of the Jordan River which flows through the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.¬† The water is blessed by readings, prayers, and censing, and finally as a cross is thrown into the water three times, in the name of the Holy Trinity. The service ends as those participating are blessed with sanctified water, for their health and salvation. As the waters of the Jordan move through the campus, our prayers reach out for God’s blessing on all those who teach, work and study there.
