Gather your family together to celebrate your child joining an even bigger family—your congregation. Invite your loved ones and the godparents to join with our online and paper First Communion invitations.
Your child’s baptism welcomed them to the church, and now it’s time to celebrate their entry into religious life beyond showing up for Sunday school. Since they’ll be busy with catechism lessons, give your little one a head start on the ceremony with customizable First Holy Communion invitations as lovely as their christening gown. Our library features designs perfect for the occasion—spring flowers, religious symbols for every tradition, and elegantly simple typographic designs. No matter what motif you choose, your invitation will make a nostalgically beautiful beginning to your child’s next big step to adulthood.
Our online design tool will let you customize your invitation’s type and backdrop in colors beyond the traditional whites, pinks, and blues—and personalize every other important detail, too. A photo invitation lets you incorporate a particularly sweet portrait (current or infant-era) of your new parishioner. Once you’ve finalized your design, make sure that every important family member is accounted for. We doubt that your kid has been updating their address book, so use your own e-mail contacts or draw from previous invitations you’ve sent—like the baptism or past birthdays. If you’d like to have a memento to keep alongside the rosary, armband, and baptism candle (or just need to make sure your less digitally literate relatives show up), send your invitation on paper with thick or double-thick card stock. You can order pre-addressed envelopes, too, to prevent any hand cramps. Order enough for the extended family or a single keepsake print to keep in the family album.
Your child’s First Holy Communion marks the beginning of their other social responsibilities, like thank you notes. Introduce them to the virtues of the handwritten note with their first set of personal stationery—perfect for all their most important communications.
