On January 6th in the Life of the Church, we celebrate the Great Feast of Theophany (Epiphany) - the Baptism of our Lord in the Jordan River.

Troparion (Tone 1) of Theophany:
When Thou, O Lord was baptized in the River Jordan
The worship of the Trinity was made manifest
For the voice of the Father bore witness to Thee
And called Thee, His beloved Son.
And the Spirit, in the form of a dove,
Confirmed the truthfulness of His word.
O Christ, our God, Who has revealed Thyself
And enlightened the world, glory to Thee!

Wishing you and your families a blessed Feastday! 

May our Lord who deigned to be baptized by John in the River Jordan for our salvation...have mercy upon us and save us!
