After doing my searching, I do not really see any container used for this purpose. I even studied the terminology for church items. This seems more like a vanity container, as part of the set for the dresser. The communion wafers are kept in a box, then on a plate or short vessel, and there is a little round container for if they are taking it to a sick or homebound person. I am not going to use the terminology I learned for fear of using it incorrectly...;0...
There are many examples of "nestling" jars, powder canisters, etc. Of course, being quite removed from religious practices, it is entirely possible that there is a church that uses this container for that exact purpose...without breaking any laws! Hope this helps a little.
Aha! Found it!
