These First Communion necklaces are available with gold-filled, sterling silver or high quality pewter medals. Made in the USA by quality craftsmen these necklaces are a gift that will hold up for day-to-day wear and become a treasured keepsake years down the road.
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 child's life. The ways we celebrate a child's 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.
