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.
I stopped posting here in August 2011 because of stark disagreement with the policies of the administration and moderating team of the forums. If you desire, feel free to PM me, message me on Facebook (link in profile), or email me: cddombrowski@gmail.com

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.
