Our Cross and Ichthys Holy Water Font is simply beautiful. You will be amazed at how much the presence of a holy water font transforms the environment of your home. Think about how it functions at church: the minute you cross yourself with holy water, the entire environment, both physical and spiritual, is utterly changed. You can have this transformation at home too, in effect, bringing your family’s attention to the sacred that pervades every moment.
