pyx disposle?


I’m a former Eucharistic minister ( for various reasons). I still have a pyx that I used to bring communion to shut-ins.

I’ve heard I should bury it;but I’m concerned it would be dug up by animals.

What is the proper way to dispose of this. I don’t think the priest at my parish would be of much help.



Why don’t you just give the pyx to your parish priest?


Or to another Eucharistic minister in your parish?


Agree with above - donate it to a seminary, parish, convent, Catholic prision ministry, someone will be blessed!


How about giving it someone else who could use it?
