Parker, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/24/2014 -- Statistics from the religious sector reveal an estimated 80 million members of the Catholic faith throughout the United States. In contrast, very few establishments offer items held dear to those who live by this religion. Despite the high demand for gifts commemorating sacred events, a sparse number of Catholic Gifts Stores Online cater to this necessity. In light of these facts, Tim Carlson of MaryShop.com has designed the online gift shop's extended inventory to bridge the current gap between supply and demand.
Stated Tim, "In order to better serve our customers, we now offer a selection of more than 17,000 items including gifts for Sacraments such as Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion. In perusing our website, customers will find items for infants, children and adults alike such as Rosary bracelets, Rosaries, Patron Saint medals, miraculous medals, Catholic statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Catholic jewelry, crosses, crucifixes and much more."
As a gift symbolic of grace, Tim noted miraculous medals are among the shop's most popular items. Offered in gold or silver, these medals display the image of the Blessed Mother and bear an inscription of the centuries old sentiment, "O Mary! Conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!" Available in the traditional oval shape, MaryShop also offers circular and heart shaped versions in pendant and key chain form. Medals manifesting the image of Catherine Laboure, original recipient of the wondrous mission to ensure creation of these medallions, are also in stock.
Patron Saint Medals for Confirmation are also common requests. MaryShop literally offers thousands thousand of saints from which to choose whether representing a career, sport, talent or other aspect. The company provides specialized search options based on name, cause, sport or military. Regardless of the specific Saint being sought, these advocates and virtuous role models are a constant reminder of the importance of leading a righteous lifestyle.
Unique Holy bears are also among the store's numerous gift options. Available for Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion, or as a thoughtful reminder of the power of prayer, these items are embroidered with designs relevant to their purpose and a variety of colors are on hand. Additionally, MaryShop’s inventory covers an array of clothing, keepsake boxes, artwork, medals for pets, personalized Rosary boxes, bibles, and numerous other items.
Concluded Tim, "Our selection includes items for Sacraments, birthdays, Quinceanera, Christmas or simply showing kindness to a loved one. Engraving is available as well, and we also offer gift certificates for those who are unsure of exactly what to purchase. We look forward to helping our customers find the gifts they need, and through their purchases, we help families in need. We also have a Free Shipping offer available."
