Product DescriptionThis pyx is just the right size to carry 5-8 hosts, depending on the size of the hosts, so would be efficient for a priest or individual to carry when doing home or hospital visits. The actual measurements are: 1-7/8" in diameter and 11/16" high. This gold-plated pyx has a white plastic insert for holding the hosts and has a green enameled cover with the image of a gold Celtic cross. The smaller size of this pyx allows it to be easily carried and allows those who can not attend church to be given Communion at home as part of a parish's pastoral care ministry. The price is inexpensive for a pyx so is not cost prohibitive when trying to supply parishioners who visit the homebound or hospitalized. This pyx also comes in a larger size that holds 8-12 hosts under item number 59507. Pyx is exclusive to our catalog groug. Special buy.
