Effective July 1, 2013 an automatic $21.00 will be added to the price of the scroll for administrative and shipping & handling costs. The scroll will always be delivered to the Diocesan Pastoral Center. You have the option of picking up the scroll or you may have it mailed to you for an additional $3. The scroll will be mailed out when payment is received. We accept cash, check, or money order. Please make checks out to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix.
  • Download the blank order form and send to the Chancery office via fax or email listed on the form.
  • Completed blessings take approx. 2-3 months to arrive to our office.  We will contact you via email with a draft to approve before it is submitted to Rome.  Once it arrives we will contact you to let you know of its arrival and to confirm pickup or shipping arrangements.
