St. John's Episcopal Church

Bedford, Virginia, USA

St. Nicholas Feast Day

Children process to the altar with the collected toys. They, and the homes that will receive them, are blessed before the children follow special guest St. Nicholas to the Godly Play room. There they learn more about him and his special way of giving and caring for those in need throughout the year.
Everyone brings new toys, books & games to be distributed by Domestic Violence Services and the county Social Services
