Christening of Dar’ja on Trinity Monday.  Tsjerablichy 2016.

Хрышчэньне Дар’і ў другі дзень Тройцы.  Цераблічы 2016 г.

 

Dar’ja’s Godparents (l-r):  Maryja, Aljena, Ivan, Vital’.  On the extreme right is Dar’ja’s father Mikhail (who, as is the custom in Belarus, withdraws before the ceremony starts as parents do not attend).

Кросныя Дар’і:  Злева направа Марыя, Алена, Іван, Віталь.  Крайні справа Міхаіл, бацька Дар’і.

 

All is peaceful before the ceremony starts.

 

Father Vital’ blows three times on Dar’ja to disperse any lingering presence of the Devil…

 

…pours water on Dar’ja’s head while she is immersed in the tub…

 

…blesses the cross which she will wear…

 

…and gives a final blessing.

 

Dar’ja falls peacefully asleep after the Christening.
