This beautiful medal honors a lesser known saint, St. Jacob. Jacob chose priesthood over medicine and in the process gave all his possessions away. He is credited with establishing the Catholic Church in Mauritius, Africa where he lived and worked with the poorest of the poor so has come to be known as the Apostle of Mauritius. The St. Jacob medal is 3/4 inch in diameter and made of sterling silver. The chain included with the medal is 20 inches long and is made of stainless steel. This chain length is a nice length for young men. The St. Jacob medal will be a perfect birthday gift for the young man named Jacob, the young man who chooses Jacob as his Confirmation name, or wish to bless a young man named Jacob with a special medal. St. Jacob is the patron saint of teachers so the medal would also be a nice gift to give a special teacher, religious education instructor or anyone involved in helping a young person with their education. The St. Jacob medal comes gift boxed.
