Today I had a meeting with our First Holy Communion catechists. One of the things that came up was the issue of certificates. I had wanted to get away from the certificates that I found when I got here which have a picture of a loaf of bread and glass of wine. So I bought certificates from the CTS which show The Last Supper (see the illustration). I thought they were nice. However they were not popular at all. There were complaints that the paschal lamb looked more like a rat and that St Peter looks angry and although Judas is meant to look unpleasant they didn`t like this either. So I got out my First Holy Communion certificate from 1966 by Laverty and Sons of Leeds and that was very popular. It shows Jesus standing with a chalice and about to administer the Host to a group of five children. Behind them is a cherry tree in full blossom. I was surprised that this was popular and said I`d try to find something similar. However searching on the web has produced no results. I even tried the SSPX Angelus Press but couldn`t see anything.
If anyone has any idea where to find any tasteful First Holy Communion certificates would you please let me know?
