      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.
