Catholic Survival Kits: Review

catholic survival kitsOne of the perks of running a Catholic family business, attending Catholic conferences and running the Catholic Bloggers Network website, is finding new and exciting initiatives: other enthused Catholics creating awesome Catholic products!  Recently, we have reviewed and showcased the Tiny Saints, Catholic Artworks, Brother Francis My Heavenly Friends Collection (Saint Cards) and the St Mary’s Press Catholic Children’s Bible.

I am so excited to shout out about these awesome Catholic Survival Kits!


They are available in three different editions: Basic (English Adult), Spanish (Adult) and Kids.  Each kit has a different selection of awesome Catholic prayers, devotionals and sacramentals, all neatly assembled in a cool, stamped, draw-string canvas bag.


I liked the look of them so much, I started taking pictures of them before I got them out of the box!

I love the great quality stuff in these kits…and they really include all the basics! This would be an awesome gift for First Sacrament and RCIA candidates, a gentle (but cool) nudge for college kids (living away from home for the first time) and any family or friends who might be open to coming back to the Church.


This is a great evangelization tool…with such a cool form factor that it will likely draw people in … without turning them away.

I had a plan to save this one as a gift for one of my Godchildren…but the deck of prayer cards was so enticing, I had to open it up!

This kit includes a deck of  “saint wallet cards”: full color, shiny cards with a classic illustration of a saint on one side and a special prayer for the saint’s intercession on the back. There are three sets of 18 different saint cards in each deck…so they are easily shared among family and friends, saint card albums and holy card collections.

  1. The Catholic Family Calendar Craft Kit is a great product that is good as a teachers gift. And i found this very interesting. I am sure your money will be worth buying this.

  2. Scott Fischer says:

    Even the basic edition looks really cool!!

  3. Jo Annn says:

    I would love to win the Basic edition kit. I converted to the Catholic faith over 20 years ago. It was the best decision I have ever made for myself. I have been actively trying to bring back some family members that seem to be floundering in these Protestant “mega” churches.

  4. What a great kit!! And the price is very reasonable, so I will be buying a few to give away.

  5. I would love to win either the basic edition or the kids edition to use with my CCD students in the fall!

  6. I’d love to win the basic for my older kids! 🙂

  7. I’d love to win the kids edition for my nephews!

  8. I would like to win the Basic Edition – I would use it for our entire family. Love all the items in it.

  9. Kathleen says:

    I would like to win the kids Catholic survival kit to share with my niece who is being baptized in July!

  10. I’d love to win the kids’ edition. I’m not sure whether I’d give it to my daughter at her First Holy Communion next year (next big family sacrament coming up) or to my godson for his upcoming birthday, but there are lots of occasions where it would be a terrific gift!

  11. Cheryl G. says:

    I would love to win the adult basic kit!

  14. Love the kids kit for my own little ones!

  15. I think the kid kit is awesome! I’d love to give it to my goddaughter, however, that is, if I can keep it away from my own 5 kids. I think we may just need one at our house too!

  16. Josephine Evatt says:

    I think the basic kid survival kit is neat. Although I like the Adult one too.

  17. I’d love the kid set for my eldest daughter. She loves to teach us new things about the faith– especially the saints!

  18. I would love to win the basic kit and give it to my son who will be 13 tomorrow. I think it would be a great addition to his suitcase when he goes away to summer camp.

  19. Christine says:

    I would love to win the adult survival pack. I would give it to a teen that is going to college. I was her Confirmation sponsor.

  20. Katie Langville says:

    I’d love to win the kids survival pack & give it to my daughter, who is 4 (so she’ll grow into some of it, I’m sure), but she’s really excited about saints right now!

  21. As a convert, I find you can never have enough Catholic tools at your disposal.
    I think that is an awesome idea for a gift.
    I’d love to have the Basic of Kids one here. Either would be great for our family.

  22. I’d love to win the Basic Adult Survival Kit. My daughter will be turning 16 next month and I think she’d like this!

  23. These are awesome! I would love to win the kids one or adult one – hard to pick one! My kids would be so excited about opening this up and learning what’s inside. It would be a fantastic learning tool!

  24. Would love the children’s one for my daughter!

  25. Barb Healey says:

    I would love to win the basic adult survival kit. I have a deck of your Cathletics playing cards and just love them. You have great products.

  35. laura orlowski says:

    I would give the basic adult survival kit to my son who is heading off to college in the fall. It will be hard for me to not have him sitting next to me at Sunday morning mass! 🙁

  36. This is for my 3 entries into the giveaway. i like this idea. Hope to use it as a gift.

  37. Heidi C says:

    While I’d love either English kit, I’d prefer the Basic kit. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  38. Jennifer Hansen says:

    What a neat idea! Seems like something a boy would like. I would like to win the kids edition for my son who is starting Communion preparation next year. I really like the basic edition, too, for a couple of young men that I know who are being confirmed, soon. Thanks.

  39. Kathryn says:

    I’d like the Kid’s pack to give to my grandson.

  40. Hi Monica,
    All of them are wonderful but I would prefer the kids edition and it would be used in my RE class for a student who is finished with their work. I typically give them a library book about a saint but I’m thinking they might enjoy looking at the saint cards. God bless!

  41. such a great idea!! Would love to win the kid’s edition for my little ones to share or the basic kit for my husband!

  42. This looks great. I would love to get the Kid’s Edition for a friend’s daughter who just made her first communion. Thanks!

  43. Veronica says:

    I would love to win the Basic edition! I would give it to my oldest daughter.

  44. I would like the Kids Pack. I would use it in my classroom. I teach Religion to grades 4-8.

  45. I like the Basic kit for a college freshman.

  46. The kids editions looks great. My boys would love it! Hope to win! Thanks!

  47. I’d love to win the kids’ one! I’m a DRE and I could give a lot of this away:-)

  48. Marybeth says:

    I would love to win either the Basic or Kids kit. I would give the Basic to my father, who is not fully practicing his faith (but goes to Mass on (most) Sundays), and the kid kit, I would give to one of my Godchildren 🙂

  49. These are so great! I made something like this for my two oldest when they moved out on their own/went to college. how neat to have everything together.
    My second son is about to depart for Christendom College, and he would be the one I’d give it to- especially since he’s discerning the priesthood.

  50. WOW! These are wonderful! I love them all! We have a migrant ministry at our church so I’m thinking the Spanish pack would be a wonderful donation!!

  51. I would give it to my step-daughter who is coming to visit in just a few weeks. We haven’t seen her in a while and it would be a great way to introduce her to the faith. I thought the Kids version would work because she has no faith formation whatsoever. Thanks!

  52. I would love the adult basic one! We have many people who have fallen away from the church, but ask questions. We also have people who are in a treatment center in our town but attend Mass and ask to take Rosaries with them. I would LOVE to be able to give them this bag!! 🙂

    Also what a great gift to give confirmation students!! The possibilities are endless! 🙂

  53. april mavros says:

    I would love the basic set. I have fallen away from the church, an have recently been feeling a draw to return, bet feel there is so much I don’t know about the church of my youth.

  54. I would like the basic edition to send to my brother. I may buy a bunch of the kids sets to hand out as first of the year gifts for the religious ed program students.

  55. The kids, to give to one of my faith formation students.
