Rest In Peace Cross with Prayer card - Engraved Holding Cross


Just over 2,000 years ago in a little town called Bethlehem, a miraculous event took place. Since that time, the same Olive Trees have been growing, nourishing locals, providing shade, and bearing witness to some of the most important moments in Christian history. 

The same trees that were alive 2,000 years ago are alive today and kept healthy by caretakers who go through a routine pruning process. Local artisans have turned the wood from this process into one of the most important symbols in Christianity, the Cross. 

Our rest in peace holding cross measures 4 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches and is meant to fit in the palm of your hand.  Our holding cross comes with a "rest in peace" laser engraved into the cross and a beautiful prayer card to pray for your loved one.
