So many customers requested 8-up prayer cards -- perforated pages with 8 cards per page -- to
match our register books and thank you cards, we set to work designing the perfect Irish cards
for your printer or copier.
Our Irish Prayer Cards are available in the same two designs on our other paper goods:
Celtic Cross and Claddagh.
These Celtic Cross prayer cards are a rich green color, with a classic ringed Celtic cross filled with traditional Irish knotwork.
A gleam of Heavenly light radiates from behind it.
The pack of 400 Celtic Cross cards (50 sheets; 8 cards per sheet) feature a variety of Irish prayers and verses.
The top four cards on each sheet (that's 200 cards total per pack) have the moving final line of the Irish Prayer:
"Until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand."
The other cards on the page are one each (total 50 cards in the pack) of these four blessings:
St. Patrick's Prayer: May the strength of God pilot us, May the wisdom of God instruct us, May the word of God protect us, Be always ours this day and forevermore, Amen
Where Irish angels gather 'round, Heavn'ly love and joy abound
Now sweetly lies old Ireland, Emerald green beyond the foam, Awakening sweet memories, Calling the heart back home
May you have: A world of wishes at your command, God and his angels close to hand, Friends and family their love impart, and Irish blessings in your heart.
On the reverse, you will create your own content. Most people include the name and sometimes a photo of the departed, dates of birth and death, and a brief prayer or verse. We provide you with a collection of Irish prayers and blessings, as well as phrases in both English and Gaelic that are appropriate for use on the prayer cards.
Please Note: You must design and print your own personalized message for the reverse side of the cards. A template is NOT included; if you don't feel able to do the layout youself, you may ask your funeral director or go to a print shop such as Kinko's for assistance.
Once printed and separated, many people choose to laminate the individual cards to improve appearance and durability. Again, your funeral director or local print/copy shop can provide assistance with this.
