Shrine of St. Patrick Pictorial Cancellation

February 15, 2023

The Shrine of St. Patrick is proud to announce the design of the 2023 Special Pictorial Cancellation Envelope.

This year’s design honors the Harp of Erin, as the harp is Ireland’s National Symbol and Erin is Ireland’s ancient name.  The Celtic harp is a triangular frame harp traditional to the Celtic nations of northwest Europe. The Prayer insert, that is included with each envelope, also honors the Harp of Erin design and includes a Celtic prayer blessing.

The Special Pictorial Cancellation envelopes are now available for purchase and can be mailed from March 1, 2023 to March 31, 2023.  For the price of $2.25 each, you will receive the Special Pictorial Cancellation Postmark, the envelope and prayer insert, postage, and the special St. Patrick, Mo.  cachet stamping.

Please send your mailing list and check, made out to the Shrine of St. Patrick, to the Shrine of St. Patrick, PO Box 34, St. Patrick, Mo. 63466.

The volunteers of the Shrine will assist in fulfilling your request by addressing the envelopes, sign the inserts if requested, and mail at the St. Patrick Post Office on the date of your choosing.

This is one of the most cherished fundraising activities at the Shrine of St. Patrick and your support would be greatly appreciated.

Delight your family and friends in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with this wonderful gift.
