Baptism, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation are seen as milestones in a Christian person’s life in Ireland. In this section, we discuss these sacraments in the Catholic church and other denominations. We also offer views of modern-day agnostic rites of passage and welcome stories from our readers that we share on our site. For our collection of information on these topics, review our links on the right.
It is traditional to mark these occasions in your child’s life with gifts to remember. Most people we speak to still cherish those gifts as adults. Some children are given rosaries or bibles which are always treasured but in speaking to adults we’ve found that most still wear a pendant or ring they received that day. Some have passed those gifts on to their children as a family heirloom. Our selection of Celtic pendants, Celtic crosses, and Celtic rings represent the immediate moment as well as your family’s Irish ancestry.
