Religious Re-gift Event
June 22 @ 4:00 pm - June 23 @ 12:30 pm
WHAT TO DO WITH UNWANTED SACRAMENTALS, OR OTHER RELIGIOUS/BLESSED OBJECTS?
The proper disposal of broken, irreparable, unwanted sacramentals, or other blessed items, is to burn or bury them. Assuming they have been blessed, all rosaries, scapulars, votives, medals, holy books or pictures, Bibles, statues, palms etc. should never be thrown in the trash. Those that can be burned should be burned. Those that cannot be burned, should be buried.
For this reason, we will gladly accept any unwanted, old, or broken holy items at the parish office. You can bring them anytime during office hours. When we have accumulated a good amount of these items, we will set up a “re-gift” table in Seton Hall for parishioners to browse and take whatever items they would like for themselves. Any items that are not taken from the table will be disposed of properly.
We will have our next “Religious Re-gift” event the weekend of June 22nd/23rd.
Please bring items you no longer use and maybe find something that you will use! As the saying goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
