On 3/7/2012 Arline Perro of Diocese of Paterson 777 Valley Road Clifton, N.J. 07013 requested a papal blessing certificate from Re. Felix del Blanco Prieto Elemosineria Apostolica 00120 Citta del Vaticano Italy for Anne L. Gerladis who celebrated her 90th birthday on 6/16/1922 requested by her daughter in law Bonnie Gerladis. A check #029681 was included for $40.00 and was cashed but, to date 6/29/2012 we still have not received the papal blessing. Could you check for me in any way regarding this situation and email a reply??
Thanking you in advance
