Every wonder what to do with old blessed palms and other blessed items ?

As with anything that has received a blessing, the disposal of these items should be done in a dignified manner.  With palms, this is generally done when a priest collects the old palms and burns them.  To accommodate this practice during the Lenten season, we will have totes available at both parish locations for collection of old palms so they may be taken care of correctly. Holy water, oils, rosaries and relics are also never to be thrown out, but instead brought to the church for proper burial or burning.  If you are unsure of how to dispose of a potentially blessed item, please contact Fr. Mike and he would be more than happy to collect
them and dispose of them properly.
