A safe secure way to carry Communion to homebound or hospitalized parishioners is with this small pyx. The gold-plated pyx has a white insert for carrying 5-8 hosts, depending on the size of the hosts, and a red Chi Rho cross enameled on the cover. The smaller size of this pyx allows it to be easily carried while keeping the hosts secure. The inexpensive cost of this pyx makes it practical for priests to have or to give to parishioners who minister to the shut-ins or hospitalized persons from the parish. This pyx also comes in a larger size under item number 59509. The pyx is exclusive to our catalog group. Special buy.
