Video: The Great Blessing of Water in Bristol Bay, Alaska

Every year the Russian Orthodox Church blesses the waters in Bristol Bay. This year however, the blessing carried with it a concerned message from the church. With the potential development of the Pebble Mine in this region, Bishop Benjamin Peterson traveled to this part of Alaska with a sense of urgency and a special message for the people of the region. This short video was taken in January of 2011 in several villages around Bristol Bay.
