Christ Church Episcopal  Takes  Possession  of  Property  

With a transfer of keys, historic Christ Church on Johnson Square in Savannah came back into the possession of Christ Church Episcopal.  Earlier today, Mimi Jones and Margaret  Miller, the top lay leaders with the Episcopal congregation met privately with Joan Malley, the Parish Administrator of the departing congregation, where Malley handed off the keys to the property, in keeping with the recent ruling of the Georgia Supreme Court. Once the keys were in hand, the wardens walked silently into the church to pray. After a time of prayer, other members of Christ Church Episcopal arrived and were met by the Rev. Michael White, the parish’s rector, to pray at the altar before beginning work.
