Catholic Supply of St. Louis, Inc.


Serving the Faithful Since 1960

More than ever before, fair trade practices have become increasingly important when buying palm leaves & strips for Palm Sunday services. As you make your plans for this joyful celebration, we would like to assure you of our personal commitment to environmental and social stewardship. We do not sell the over-harvested tropical Chamaedorea palm. In fact, the palm strips and altar decorations we sell come from several varieties of desert palm. Our supplier's palms are grown and harvested with a focus on protecting the environment: Palm leaves are harvested only from mature trees and when the trees reach a height of 8 to 10 feet, they are sold for landscaping applications. Fields are harvested once a year, serving as a safe haven for local plants and wildlife during the remaining months. Our palm supplier's workers are treated with dignity and paid fair wages: The annual harvest at their South Texas operation provides workers with good pay and employs more than 200 workers in one of the poorest counties in the U.S. Almost 75% of these workers return year after year to work. At every operation, workers are paid fairly and treated according to all legal and ethical standards.

We are honored to provide premium quality palm strips and decorations for your Holy Week celebrations. We fully support your interest in making informed purchases and your business is truly appreciated. If you have any questions about your order, please feel free to call us at 800-325-9026.
