What to do with old sacramentals? — 16 Comments

  1. Father, do you think that parishes could just have a special basket placed somewhere for parishioners to put their unwanted/broken/ripped, etc. sacramentals in? Thanks to the many requests we get for help, we have a ton of prayer cards, pictures, etc. that we can’t possibly keep up with. Thank you for this post!

  2. I would like to know how to get my Rosary blessed,,, should I bring it directly to my priest?

  3. Father i am interested in getting some of these rosaries,relics,saints medals that no one wants and if i could get them for free. If you don’t have any could you let me know some people that might have these? My email is fsacco1@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

    • If you are still interested after 4 years, let me know. I have a handful of pray cards and two ceramic face wall hangings one of Mary and one of Jesus. I will gladly let you have them.

  4. I too have many religious prayer cards, rosaries and medals that I receive in the mail that I would love to send to someone or someplace that could give them to someone that could use them. If you know of a mission or some who wants them please email me. God Bless!

I will be extremely grateful if you do this…. my email id is -akashrocks.sachdeva7@gmail.com please inform me I am waiting. Thank you

      • I tried your email address and was not able to get it to go via the address you gave.

  5. My mother used to collect sacramental, since she has passed away nobody cared for them. Now I thought of having them fixed before giving them to our relatives. Do you know any shop who revives such statues?

  6. Can someone tell me if the scapular medal is one of those on the “4 way” medal?

  7. I have a bunch of catholic prayer cards, prayer books, etc. My church does not allow parishioners to just leave them in the church. I really do not feel right about discarding them. There has to be some place to which I can mail them (within the U.S only). Any ideas? Thanks.

    • Yes, I would love to receive them for the purposes of proper disposal. If you care to send them to me please contact me at Bluesamson2005@gmail.com.

      This goes for anyone else wishing to dispose of any old sacramentals…please feel free to contact me.

      • I actually prefer to not have them disposed of or thrown away. I prefer to donate them or give them to someone who will make proper use of them. Thanks.

        • I would Love to have them, I live in Va. I fix and clean whatever need fixing or cleaning then I give them as gifts to the ones who need then, my email is abiarose@yahoo.com would love to hear from you

    • i’d love ’em. i use some of the material on my web site, if i can. and since I’m a convert I have a fascination with them that seems to escape people who grew up the cards and beads and medals, etc.
