Catholic Faith Store offers a wonderful selection of First Communion dresses in silk, satin and cotton blends. The dresses come in a variety of sizes including plus size Communion dresses and they can be mailed overseas to our international customers. Don’t hesitate to ask questions. We want to help you find the perfect dress. We also carry a variety of short jackets to add to the outfit.
First Communion dresses are made of white fabric to remind us of our baptism. The color of a First Communion dress symbolizes the purity of the soul which has been prepared to receive Jesus. The First Communion dress should be simple, yet elegant. It is NOT a bridal gown; it shouldn’t be “sexy” and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Rather, it is a dress worn in honor of the “King of Kings, our Lord.” The First Communion veil, headpiece, or head covering is a symbol of humility. The true beauty is in the soul…while the dress is a reflection of the desire to show respect for our Lord and Savior. We long to receive our Lord; “Like the deer that yearns for the running stream…” Psalm 42.
It is our hope that this day will be especially memorable and meaningful…with a bit of help from the Catholic Faith Store!
