The First Communion Gift Sets often include a Missal, scapular and rosary. Some have additional items such as a book mark, pin, rosary case or purse! These sets are keepsake reminders of the importance of the Holy Eucharist and are reminders of this special day.
A Missal is a good way for a young person to follow along at Mass. A scapular is a reminder to pray like the monks who wore a woolen outer tunic, held together at the shoulders by two smaller pieces of cloth. The scapular is a designation that we are a “praying people.”
