This oxidized silver scallop shaped baptismal shell has a cross and is etched with "By Water and the Holy Spirit."
A scallop shell has historically represented the start of a pilgrimage journey. When baptized, one starts their spiritual journey in life. When Jesus Christ was baptized, John the Baptist used a scallop shell to scoop up water from the Jordan River for the baptist.
Ask your minister to bless this shell prior to the Baptism, and then pass it down from generation to generation as a treasured family keepsake. A wonderful gift from a Godparent. Comes in blue organza bag with a prayer of blessing for those being baptized.
Dimensions: 3.5" x 3"
