Of all seven sacraments, the Eucharist is greatest. In all of the sacraments we receive grace, but only in the Eucharist do we receive Christ Himself- Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. Receiving their First Holy Communion is one of the most important moments in a childs life. The ways we celebrate a childs First Communion help them understand that this is an important event: from the special First Communion outfit they wear, to their party with cake and gifts, to the quiet time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament… all of these are things that communicate the importance of the sacrament. A Eucharistic medal is an especially meaningful reminder of this, because its something they can wear every Sunday or even every day.
Many of the medals we have selected for a First Communicant feature the Host & Chalice in a number of unique designs: four-way crosses, heart shaped pendants, chalice shaped charms, oval and round medal, monstrance shaped pendants. They medals are available in as stunning gold-filled and sterling silver and high quality pewter medals, which make these necklaces a gift that will both hold up for day to day wear and will surely become a treasured keepsake years down the road.
