What gift to buy a Priest who is retiring?
Retired Priests often continue to be of service in their community offering spiritual and practical guidance, so in this essence they never really retire. However from the Church they retire officially at 70 years of age.
How do you commemorate a priest’s vast contribution over the years?
I have designed (via Zazzle – world leader in print on demand gifts) some commemorative plaques, ornaments, clocks and mugs to honor your Priest who is retiring this year.
Knowing you appreciate and are thinking of him/her at what may be a very challenging and emotional time is thanks enough. Be sure to also offer a Prayer.
All of these personalized Priest keepsake gifts have text template fields for you to add their name, date of ordination, date of retirement, years in service and some scripture, Bible verse of your choosing. You can even add a photo or other image on some of the Priest retirement gifts in this collection.
What to gift a Priest leaving the Parish?
