* UPS Second Day Air means that the package will arrive within two business days AFTER the day that the order was shipped (see example). Orders requesting Second Day shipping must be received by Catholic Family Gifts, by 10:00am CST (Central Standard Time). Express orders placed after that time will be shipped on the next Business day. For example: an order placed before 10am Wednesday should arrive on Friday. If the order was placed after 10am Wednesday , it might not be shipped until Thursday. Then it would not arrive until the following Monday, two business days after it was picked up.
