gift for children

A few weeks ago I was in a Catholic gift shop when a number of customers were searching for gifts for children preparing to receive communion for the first time.

A number of the shoppers were at a loss about what gift to buy and asked my advice.

If you want to hear what I said to them take a moment to watch this brief clip which features my recommendation to them, and if you then would like to make the purchase you will find the details beneath the video.


To purchase the St. Paul’s Sunday Missal (suitable for use in New Zealand and Australia) make contact with St Joseph’s Centre Gift Shop. Say that you saw the promotion on Food For Faith and they will send the missal to you (in New Zealand) at the discounted price of $50.00 including postage.

  1. Wow!!
    This has opened my eyes to how I approach my role as a teacher for our Sacramental programmes at church
    Thank Father John.

  2. You gave this missal to my 9 year old son Fr John to celebrate his first holy communion. He is so proud of it. I am sure he matured, if even just a little, right at that monent.
    Thank you.
