What to write in a communion card

By Photobox on 21 April 2022

We love to see families celebrate their special occasions (no seriously, we love it) and want to be with them every step of the way. From the planning of the ceremony to the thank-yous, we’ve got everything you need for a great first communion.

In this blog we will be giving some holy communion card message inspiration, which communion card is right for you and a few little gift ideas. We’ve got a lot to organise so let’s go.

Being invited to a First Communion is special, so you want to celebrate the best way, right? Correct. Choosing one of our cards to give during the communion is the perfect way to celebrate this special day. But first, you need a message to go inside, don’t you worry, we’ve got that covered too.



  • May you always know the peace of Jesus, the light of his love, and the joy of his life within you
  • May God, who brought you to this special day continue to direct your life in his perfect way
  • May this life-giving Bread always feed your soul and nourish your spirit
  • May you always live your faith with joy
  • As you receive your First Holy Communion, embrace the joy that comes from knowing Jesus
  • God bless you as you receive Eucharist on your First Holy Communion. May the love of Jesus shine in your heart



  • Congratulations on your special day. May it be full of joy and surrounded by your loved ones
  • My best wishes on such an important event, we’re so proud of you
  • Wishing you everlasting happiness, peace and joy
  • Sending you lots of love on such a special day for you
  • Our sincere congratulations. First Communion is an enormous joy, sending you our best wishes
  • May you always feel surrounded by love and peace as on this special day

Within our communion card range we have four unique designs to choose from. Whether you’re choosing a card for the family or using them as invitations for the ceremony, our cards are versatile and made just for you. Our cards come in different sizes too, from square and rectangular to folded and flat, the choice is yours to make.

What better way to say thank you for attending the communion by sending one of our personalised thank you cards? 

  • Thank you for helping me celebrate my first holy communion and for your generous gift
  • Thank you for coming to our first communion and helping us to celebrate our special day
  • Thank you to our family and friends for your love, support and generosity. My communion day was made memorable because of your presence and loving thoughts
  • Thank you for joining us today in the celebration of the faith as I dedicate my heart to Jesus may God bless you and yours on this very special day.

Personalised photo gifts are what we do best, so why not pair your communion card with a gift too? We have a huge range of personalised photo gifts to choose from (the tricky part is deciding which one). From photo blocks to framed photo prints, you can come to the communion ceremony bearing gifts for the little one.
