Product Description
The pyx is a type of small container that is used in a variety of faiths during the celebration of the Eucharist. Its primary purpose is to hold and carry the consecrated host. Because it is small in size, it is usually used as part of a sick mass kit or travel kit to carry hosts to the sick or the frail. Most traditional versions of the pyx are round in shape with a flattened lid and a hinged side.

The Hand Engraved Pyx from Matthew F. Sheehan has a traditional round shape and a beautiful gold-plated exterior with a polished finish. The piece has a flat lid that and is accented with the letters IHS on the top. The letters are hand engraved for exceptional quality and a beautiful addition to the design. The three initials stand for, "In His Service" and are a common addition to communion tools. This pyx holds six standard-size hosts and is the perfect size to add to a sick kit. This piece measures approximately 3/4-inches high by two-inches in diameter.
