International shipments and shipments to Guam, Puerto Rico, Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands or APO addresses will be shipped via 1st Class Mail through the United States Postal Service. Actual postage charges will apply based on package weight and final destination.
**Please note: Some items may be ineligible for international shipping due to size/weight. You will be notified if the item in your order cannot be shipped to your international destination.**
Shipping charges for larger items are based on the item weight and destination for larger items such as cases of First Communion banner kits, palm, church candles, Altar wine, large scale statuary, large scale nativity scenes, and church furniture. For larger items, like those mentioned, you will be charged the actual shipping charge (based on weight/destination) for your order.
APO/FPO Parcel Post delivery requires that we are only responsible for proof of delivery to your APO/FPO address. We cannot be responsible for lost packages once they have been received into and confirmed at the APO/FPO. You will need to contact your APO/FPO for tracing packages from that point. All APO/FPO packages are sent certified.
