NOV. 22, 2022 – UPDATE: STAMPS ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED

For over 25 years, Sister Miriam Ann has received stamps from donors from all over the world. She spends most of her days cutting and sorting stamps. After Sister has prepared, packaged and sealed the many boxes of stamps, she takes them to a stamp collector. The stamp collector sends a check to Sister based not only on their weight, but if the stamps are foreign or from the United States. Sister Miriam is very proud of the money she has been able to raise for the SCN missions over the years.

As Sister is approaching the Golden Years, she has decided that she would like to stop her stamp ministry. If you, or an organization you are associated with, have been collecting and donating stamps to Sister, please know that your efforts have been appreciated. However, we are asking that Sister’s wishes to end this ministry be honored. Sister is looking forward to being retired at age 96 with plans to be a volunteer reader to other Sisters who are visually impaired.

Thank you for all you have done to contribute to the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth ministries. You are welcome to support the SCN missions in other ways. Check out this website to find out more about the many opportunities to support the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and their worldwide missions.

Sincerely,

Jenny Hicks
Director of Sister Services
