BLESSING OF THE STUFFED ANIMALS
Each year, Christ Church invites members and friends, young and old, to bring new or gently worn stuffed animals to the Church.
Our children gather with the clergy and offer a blessing of these cuddly friends, praying that they might be a symbol of God's love and care for all of God's children.
They are then donated to the Savannah Police Department, and the officers carry some in the back of their patrol cars. When a child has witnessed or been impacted by a tragic or fear filled moment, the officers give the stuffed animal to the child as a focal point of care and concern.
