If you are visiting a large number of people at home or in the hospital this larger sized pyx could be what you need. The gold-plated pyx holds 8-12 hosts depending on the size of the hosts. The pyx has a white plastic insert to hold the hosts and has a gold image of the IHS cross enameled on the blue cover. This is a nicely designed inexpensive pyx so would be practical to give to parishioners who make home visits or hospital visits as part of the parish pastoral care ministry. The pyx would allow them to carry Communion conveniently and securely as they take Communion to fellow parishioners. This pyx also comes in a smaller size under item number 59505. Pyx is exclusive to our catalog group. Special buy.
