Christmas time ends with one of the largest and oldest Christian holidays - the Baptism of or Lord.

On this Great Christian holiday, believers remember the biblical story of the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist in the Jordan River. In memory of the fact that Jesus Christ consecrated the water with Baptism, water blessings are performed.

Traditionally, employees of AGAT took part in the baptismal bathing, plunging into the font of the All Saints Church.
