    Hey! I found this for you and although I wasn’t able to find a medal or prayer card I would recommend reading up on him and his history there is a link at this little nuns blog for him, here is the link http://asksistermarymartha.blogspot.com/2009/12/raining-not-kats-and-dogs.html
    I know you probably have hundreds but you might want to get your son a special set of Rosary Beads for his Confirmation if you can’t find a medal or even if you can. Anyway, I got a kick out of the blog link I gave you and I hope you have a little smile after reading it too, it made me think of Mother Angelica!

    With Love in Christ,

    Thank you Kathleen.
    My son had to do a paper on St. Notker so we already know all about his life. And yes, he has many rosery beads. :)
    What I ended up doing was printing the picture of St. Notker and framing it. I am still hoping to find a medal or holy card some day.
    I enjoyed Sister Mary Martha’s blog. She seems like quite the character!

    I have not heard of this Saint but I am always looking to expand my knowledge with the Catholic church. Thanks for some of the insight, I am going to look further into it in the next couple of days and if I find some good stuff I am going to introduced him to my Sunday School class and our curriculum on Sunday.
