in case somebody didn't give the correct reference already (i'm on
digest mode)-- of course you can always google 'orthodox consecration'
or some such and find all kinds of things.
but i think the photoessay you mean was the consecration of st seraphim
/ holy protection (oca) church in santa rosa, calif. So, google "st
seraphim santa rosa" and see what you get.
i can email but not surf here in sultry kampala, so i can't send you
the exact reference.
there might be other such pictures out there, but that's the one i
know. not really so informative as one would wish, given the rarity of
the event, unfortunately.
as i recall there's a picture of yours truly ringing bells somewhere in
that photoessay too.
