Blue Sunday Day Of Prayer

Blue Sunday Day of Prayer
Sunday, April 30

 

CASA

Why is it called Blue Sunday?
Blue is the accepted “memorial ribbon” color for honoring the victims of child abuse.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.
We chose the last Sunday in April to be called Blue Sunday.

What is Blue Sunday?

Over 1600 children die annually as victims of child abuse. Most were under the age of three. Most were victims of neglect. Blue Sunday was created over 30 years ago to unify the Faith Based Communities to raise awareness for and help children who have endured abuse and neglect. We ask that churches take time in their service during this day to pray for the victims of child abuse and for those who rescue them. We pray because they shouldn’t have to pray alone.
How can my church be involved?

How can my church be involved?

For you to participate in Blue Sunday Day of Prayer for Abused Children, our only requirement is prayer. It’s free, and there’s nothing to join, just prayer.
