2012 Christmas cards on sale now

The Saint Catherine Foundation charity Christmas cards for 2012 feature an icon from the important Saint Catherine’s Monastery collection and a black-and-white image of Sinai by the celebrated Swiss photographer Fred Boissonnas (1858-1944). The cards are produced on heavy semi-gloss paper with a matt interior writing surface. The matching envelopes have a self- sealing flap. Thanks to the sponsorship of the EFG Group, all proceeds from Christmas card sales benefit the Saint Catherine Foundation and its work. The cards cost £1.50 each in our online shop.
