Holy Cross Stamp program

Send Your Cancelled Stamps or Purchase from our Collection to Contribute to Our Ministries 

By saving canceled stamps from your mail, you will support us through your contribution to the Sisters of the Holy Cross Ministry With the Poor Fund

Our sisters remove the stamps from the envelope, sort them and sell them to brokers and collectors. The proceeds benefit our ministries, helping those in need around the world. Invite others to save stamps, too!

Save stamps that have their perforations intact, are not too heavily canceled, and are not torn, cut or stained. Leave at least 1/4 inch on each side of the stamp when cutting it from the envelope.
