A thoughtful gift or handwritten card is a great way to show your love and support for our friends entering the Church.
One of the most beautiful things about Easter is the entry into the Church of all the candidates who celebrated the RCIA. (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). Seeing these converts enter into the family of Christ as our new brothers and sisters is a source of joy and hope.
A great way to show our love and support for our friends entering the Church is with a thoughtful gift or handwritten card. If you want some ideas on what to give your friend or family member entering the Church this Easter, read on!
Rosary well made
You have so many options here! A book about your friend’s confirmation saint is very thoughtful, or about one of the great spiritual classics that changed the lives of saints.

A medal from your friend’s new patron saint is a meaningful way to keep this heavenly friend in mind.
Giving your friend a mass might just be the best gift of all.
If they don’t already have one, a crucifix is a perfect gift: every Catholic household needs one!

It’s such a special gift for your friend to hang on their front door.
Prayer book or devotional
There are so many great devotions and prayer books to choose from! We are supporters of Every Holy Sunday for weekly prayer and reflection related to Sunday Gospel readings.
A nice box to hold rosaries or a wall hanger for rosaries would be helpful!
worship and dinner
We love the idea of planning to join your friend for a holy hour together, followed by a dinner date. The Pocket Guide to Worship would be just the right gift for this occasion!
