Item details

Lovely religious / Catholic vintage ephemera items.
Please view all photos.
All of the prayer cards are very sweet, and appear to be from the 1930s / 40s / 50s.
Some are printed/lithographed in USA, some say ITALY.
A couple are written in Polish (printed USA).
There are 4 Sacred Heart prayer cards, and they are quite lovely.

Four of these pieces are connect to the Karwata family of Chicago.
Francis Karwata, PhD (Priest b. 1893 Chicago) - 2 Funeral / Prayer Cards.
Francis was a Priest at Our Lady of the Lake in Green Lake, Wisconsin at the time of his death in 1959.
His brother, Felix Karwata (b. 1899 Chicago).
Felix's school card for St Hedwig's (Chicago) is included, and it contains his mother's (Marie/Mary Karwata) signature. There is also his "Society of the Little Flower" membership card (expires in 1928).
Hoping to catch the eye of a family member who is researching KARWATA Genealogy.
The rest of the items were found with these pieces, however they are not personalized.

There are a few more miscellaneous Religious paper items which I will include, as they all came from the same estate.
Items are clean, no mold or dampness, no odors.
