Why Choose Us

Experience counts

My name is Susan Banks, owner of Faith & Begorra. I have over 30 years experience with young children celebrating their First Communion. The shop was started because I had trouble finding the right gifts for our own five children when they went through their sacraments.

Here I am over 30 years later with the finest and largest most complete Communion Department in the Tri-State Area. We have sent our dresses to many foreign countries and families from over 18 States have traveled to us here at Faith & Begorra to pick from our selection.

We are a small shop with a personalized service for each family. Robin, Patricia, Kristin, MaryLou, Joan and I look forward to you coming in with your little one as you journey through this very special time. We want to guide you through having their special day remembered.

Dress Alterations

We do not offer alterations, which is why we deduct 20% off your dress purchase. If you need alterations, we have the cards for two excellent businesses. Just ask at the register.

We suggest if you need alterations to wait until about 3 weeks before Communion as little ones grow.
