How to Return Your In-Pew Appeal Giving Envelopes

In response to recent changes to FedEx's procedures, we've refined our method for managing the return of in-pew envelopes. Now, all you need to do is bring your packed envelopes to any FedEx Ship Center, and they'll ship them for you using the AOB account—no labels or calls necessary. This approach not only simplifies the process but also ensures cost efficiency in handling the envelopes. Importantly, there is no cost to your parish for this service.


We are grateful for your role in the Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries and want to make this as seamless as possible for you. If the new procedure isn't convenient, we have two alternative solutions. We have partnered with a courier service, and as a third option, your Advancement Director can pick them up for you. Thank you!


Important Information


  • Include the transmittal form in your shipping package.
