Our Story

My husband, Clint, had the idea of these cards when we were looking for a gift for my father--you know, one of those men who buys himself everything! Clint and I both have roots in the Midwest, where family card games are particularly popular, and we love to share a friendly game of spades with my parents, so Clint suggested we get my dad some cards with Saints on them. I went to search for a nice deck of Catholic cards and we were surprised that high quality, aesthetically pleasing cards that celebrate the faith weren't readily available. We also saw the opportunity as a way to help support our family as I stay home with the kids, with the intention to homeschool.

10% of our profits go towards Catholic charity. At the moment, we have identified four primary recipients: the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (CFR), Hogar Nazareth (a Catholic orphanage in Honduras, where we lived for a few years and got to know the CFR friars there well), and St. Michael Ukrainian Catholic Church in Mishawaka, Indiana. If you have a preference where your donation goes or have another suggestion, please email me at mary@holyplayingcards.com.

If you bought the cards, we hope you like them and that they bring you and your family and friends closer to Christ, His Mother, and the Saints! If you have the time, reviews on Etsy or Amazon really help us spread the word.

Thank you,
