Appropriate Gift?
« on: July 23, 2006, 10:52:04 PM »
In two weeks my best friend, an ACROD deacon , will be ordained a priest.

I have no idea if a gift is appropriate, and if so, what might be suggested on this occasion.

Any ideas?


(A unique ordination, I think. Last year this deacon's father was ordained a deacon. In three weeks our newly ordained priest will celebrate his first Divine Liturgy at his father's parish - his father assisting as deacon. Met. Nicholas has a sense of humor, I must say.)

Demetri,
May be a box for Holy Gifts, which is small and can be easily placed in a car, moved from one location to another. I know someone, who got a wooden cup for communion as such a gift.

They have some really nice things.  Their prices are great.  The priest there is very nice also.

Demetri,
May be seminary stores have such things? Or they can offer other good possibilities.
