The Perfect Graduation Gift: "The College Survival Kit"

June is the month for weddings, graduations and graduation parties. If you're looking for that special graduation gift, consider - "The College Survival Kit." Originally developed by Connie Keriazes from Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral / Camp Hill, PA for her Church School graduates, it has been adapted and augmented for this article. This is a gift that won't be forgotten.

Orthodox Study Bible;
a prayer book;
a Liturgy book;
icon of Christ or the graduate's patron saint;
a book of the lives of saints;
a sampling of topical booklets produced by Conciliar Press [$.95 ea. - Call for their catalog 1-800-967-7377];
