Yekaterinburg churchgoers take Epiphany plunge at church pool

A large font portable pool was installed on Sunday at the Chrysostom parish church in celebration of Epiphany, allowing parishioners to take the plunge.

The pool will have a diameter of almost 13 feet and a depth of three feet. The entrance to the special tent was divided between men and women, Ekburg.ru reports.

Priests encouraged parishioners to take some of the blessed water home.
