Send a Card to a Parishioner


We have many parishioners who would appreciate a real “snail mail” card from their church family - sent and received the old fashioned, non-electronic, US Postal Service way.


It's easy to reach out to a fellow parishioner with a card

or postcard to:

  • express good cheer or thanks
  • reconnect, recognize or appreciate
  • send love, congrats or good luck 
  • support someone on our prayer list
  • support someone in military service

Please let this program help you reach people who might appreciate and benefit from receiving a card in the mail.


We have the cards and we have the stamps! You can also use your own card(s)….but please: write a short note, address the envelope, leave it in the box on Birgit's office door and we will stamp and mail it promptly. Easy, thoughtful and a nice surprise for any recipient!
