Blessings Across Our Nation

If you have ever sent a donation to KNOM and received a paper thank you letter in return, you may have noticed the stamp on the envelope. Years ago, a long-time benefactor mailed every donation with a Christmas stamp that had an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary. One day, he sent a note with his gift, explaining how much he loved the idea of the Blessed Mother criss-crossing the entire country and blessing the nation as she went.

KNOM was so inspired by his letter that we decided to follow suit and use Christmas stamps year-round for most of our correspondence. It’s a small way to express our desire for God’s blessings on you.
