A holy water font is also referred to as a stoup. The holy water fonts are holy water holders and come in a variety of sizes for use at home and in churches. We use holy water fonts to hold holy water and for Catholics we will dip our finger into the font and make the sign of the cross. This act is considered a renewal of our baptismal promises as well as a way to ward off evil. The holy water fonts sold at the Catholic Faith Store are perfect for home use and make lovely gifts.
