What to gift your Priest who is retiring, moving on to pastures new?
Priests receive a great many gifts from their parish members throughout their religious life. Gifts include Bibles, icons, plaques, rosary beads and boxes and many other religious themed items which can over the years mount up creating box loads of Priest gifts. And though they appreciate these many gifts it does make it difficult to display, store and when leaving a Parish a challenge to pack up and transport. With this in mind, there are alternative gift options for a Priest who is leaving the parish which he or she will be delighted to receive as they are both commemorative and practical. Practical being the operative word here.
Cash , a cheque, a donation to the church and a prayer are always welcome as are consumables which do not require any storage. These might include food and wine gift baskets, a voucher for a day at the golf course or a gift certificate.
Practical Keepsakes make great leaving gifts A journal or planner for your Priest which has been personalized to reflect your appreciation and his years in service to your community is one such idea. They will have many reasons to make entries in such a planner or journal in their new ministry. Appointments, sermon notes and more. Let's take a look at a varied range of Priest journals and planners which cover all budgets. Gifts are available via Zazzle (can be personalized) and Amazon.
