Bowls / Sets / Shells

Shop Matthew F. Sheehan for all of the baptismal tools you need to perform any type of ceremony. Our bowls, sets and shells are made in traditional or modern styles to match the decor of the church or the preferences of the family. Items may be purchased by a church or priest to perform many baptisms or a special item may be purchased by the family to be used for the ceremony and then kept as a keepsake of the important day.

Bowls or shells are used in the baptism rite to pour water over the head of the person receiving the service. The shell shape is a Biblical reference to the fact that the first baptisms were done using shells from the sea. Other shapes including contemporary designs may also be used.

Besides bowls and shells, we also carry baptism sets. Sets may contain several items including a tray, oil stocks, cotton containers and bowls, though the contents of sets may vary. Select products are also eligible for engraving for a small additional charge. Ordering an engraved Catholic baptismal shell is an easy way to create a long lasting memento of the event.
