    Default Holy communion question

    Our friends have invited us to their son's holy communion. We don't know much about catholic celebrations. Are we expected to give a card or gift?

    I think usually a card and a little keepsake sort of thing, like for a baby maybe one of those silver rattles or something? I may be way off?

    Yes, it is customary to give the child a card and gift. Some people give religious gifts, but I don't always (and I'm a Catholic). I think a beautiful book is a really nice gift.

    Default Holy communion question

    Hi! I did my confirmation when I was younger. We were given cards and gifts were given in the form of religious things, books, prayer cards, pins, statues etc.
    That was over 20 years ago though so I'm not sure of the norm now!
    I think a card and perhaps a donation to the church on the child's behalf would be fine, I can't see anyone thinking that's a bad thing to do!

    They have some cute little presents, photo frames etc with 'first communion' inscribed on them in some news agents and gift shops

    My son goes through Reconciliation this year I am getting him his own rosary beads which he is quite excited about. Perhaps that's a gift that might be nice for your friends child?

    Yes a card and a small gift is appropriate.
    Doesnt have to be religious.
    But you can find Christian cards at news agencies if you like for holy communion.
