Attn: Patriarchal Blessings

In order to efficiently process requests in a timely manner, we ask that you only request four blessings per month for deceased ancestors.  Due to the high volume of requests, priority is given to blessings for living individuals. These will be handled within 14 days. Requests for blessings for the deceased take longer and will be processed in the order received. All email and letter requests will be returned through postal mail.
