1st Communion Cross Necklace (EL263)
Here's an appropriate and thoughtful gift for your Eucharistic Ministers and First Communion students. This cross necklace is hand-painted on a coconut shell, then lacquered for protection. There's a chalice representing the cup of forgiveness. The grapes are representative of the new covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ. The wheat stalks symbolize the broken body of Christ or the bread of life. And of course the dove as the symbol of the Holy Spirit. A very symbolic gift for the sacrament of First Holy Communion. Comes with an eyelet hook and cotton string that you tie yourself for a custom length. Fairly traded from El Salvador, measures 1.5" x 1"
The fair trade income of the artists from this cooperative provides better nutrition and educational opportunities for their children.
