Christening and Communion

Some Suggestions

For a child's Christening or first Communion, there are various gifts that would be appropriate, reflecting both the Ukrainian theme and the religious element. Greeting cards are available for these occasions.

We carry Kryzhmy or traditional christening cloths in cotton, with embroidery designs, as well as christening gowns.

14k gold or sterling silver crosses (small or larger size), or Virgin Mary with Jesus medallions make wonderful gifts from godparents, and important elements in the ceremony.

A byzantine-style traditional icon of the Virgin Mary or Jesu or a Guardian Angel make a fine memento, and will be a treasured item. Many lovely designs are available, all on wood, in various sizes. Original glass icons and angels, including Christening angels are beautiful alternatives, as are original Ukrainian angel watercolors. Please check availability

Children's illustrated prayer books are also available.
