Members of the Greek community in Japan celebrated Epiphany at a beach in the southern prefecture of Okinawa on Sunday.

GreeceJapan.com reports that the liturgy was performed by Father David, a Greek Orthodox American priest, who said the blessings and cast the Holy Cross into the water.

The Cross was captured by 8-year-old Leonidas, who may well be the youngest diver who got the Cross throughout the Orthodox Christian world, says GreeceJapan.com.
