What do you say in a card for a priest's 25th Anniversary of Ordination? Being specific about your interaction with him and the blessings he has bestowed on your life and your family will be greatly appreciated. He may or may not remember your name, but it is a good idea to be specific and relate your relationship with him. An example of this may be: Thank you Father James for your 25 years of service to the church and God's people. You Baptized our daughter, Catherine, and son, Joshua, during your ministry in St. John's parish. We look back on those pictures with joy and blessings, knowing that you will always be a special part of our family."

You can click on the card or the title and go to the card sites with additional card selections for priests.
These first 2 cards for a priest's silver jubilee celebration are from Sandra Rose Designs - my own site. Below that, are Greeting Card Universe and Zazzle, where I also sell my cards, but have a large selection of other cards to choose from.
Gifts for a priest can include gift cards to a local restaurant, bookstore, or other store if you know his interests. Also think about a gift card to Amazon, Ebay, or other online site. Here is a site that gives some specific ideas and links where they can be purchased. They are for a priest's 50th anniversary, but are just as appropriate for a Catholic Priest's 25th Jubilee.
