A wonderful solution to our giftgiving problem

Students of the Assumption School in New Jersey

“Monastery Icons has been a wonderful solution to our school’s Christmas ‘giftgiving problem.’ Our children are very receptive to religious education and used to iconography, so an icon is the perfect choice for a holiday gift of a religious nature. ”

The children love their icons and the parents have also expressed their appreciation. Many children have even used the icons to create an icon corner at home. Giving Monastery Icons at Christmastime has become an annual tradition at our school.

“One boy told me: ‘When I opened up my gift, the beautiful icon of the Holy Family reminded me of the true meaning of Christmas – to be with your family and those you love, not just getting gifts.’”
- Sister Vladimyra, Assumption Schooll, New Jersey

I hope and pray that this icon of this Patron Saint of eachers will find its place in the many faculty rooms of Catholic schools through the country and world.”
