Scrip Program

The Scrip Program was implemented over ten years ago by Ron and Joan Nelthorpe. They proposed to the pastor this new and innovative fundraiser. The pastor saw the potential and right away approved the new program. Many volunteers were needed to staff the scrip office; a base inventory was established and soon after the parish begun selling the scrip (gift cards).
The way the program works is very simple: the parish buys scrip from various merchants at a discount and sells it for full value. Some vendors are very generous and give the parish up to 18% and some give 2%. The majority offer 6 to 10 percent.
The script office is open:
Monday – Wednesday – Friday
from 9 am to Noon
First Sunday of the Month only, from 8:30 am to 11:30 am

The parish is extremely grateful to the scrip volunteers and customers who participate in the program. Their effort and enthusiasm provides the parish much needed funds it wouldn’t otherwise have with out your help.
We invite everyone in the parish to support this effort by coming to buy scrip for your basic needs such as gasoline, groceries, drug stores and department stores. Not only will you help the parish but it will also help you stay on budget.

Using scrip does not cost you a penny extra!


Youth Ministry (Spanish only)
