Catholic Gifts Canada is a family-owned and operated business consisting of 2 employees - my husband, Tony, and me (Maxine). Married for 26 years, we have no surviving children but are very blessed to have loving and large extended families (and 3 resident felines). During our married life, we have been active in various marriage preparation programs for engaged couples and with Marriage Encounter.
Over the years, while searching for meaningful gifts for our nieces and nephews, I became frustrated at the lack of high quality, unique gifts available in Canada for Catholic sacramental occasions. For my First Holy Communion, my Grandmother gave me a beautiful crystal rosary that I use to this day and, every day, I am reminded of her love and offer a prayer for her soul. This is the effect we were looking for in the gifts that we gave so, after much prayer, we discerned that God was calling us to set up Catholic Gifts Canada.
We don't merely sell products; our goal is to spread the richness of our Catholic faith through our gifts and cards. We pray for all of our customers and the recipients of our gifts. We are committed to providing you with the kind of personal service that only a family business can provide. We share our Catholic faith by serving you with a loving heart and high ethical standards.
Although we are practicing Catholics, Catholic Gifts Canada is not formally or legally affiliated with the Catholic Church except through our personal faith lives.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. We hope we will become your source for special gifts that commemorate all of the spiritual occasions in your life and the lives of those you love.
If you have any comments, suggestions, or stories about the gifts we offer and how they have touched the lives of others, we'd love to hear from you.
May God bless you!
Maxine & Tony Rybka
