ordination gifts
« on: June 03, 2011, 02:35:36 AM »
Does anyone have advice on things that would be good to give as a gift in congratulations for an ordination? I have diaconal ordination particularly in mind right now, but would be interested in hearing about others too.

Icons, a bible, a book on the Lives of the Saints, etc.

There's a post either here or on Monachos (sorry, don't have the energy to look - it's 1.30am here and I'm only awake because the stately home over the woods is having a shindig) that lists the books required for a good liturgical library, a lot of them are expensive, but perhaps you could start your deacon friend towards the collection?

In Christ,

a nice pen set, tie clip, cuff links...i'm sure he's getting plenty of icons and religious books as it is. or a bottle of good Bourbon.
