11/27/2022 - 1st Sunday of Advent
“On this first Sunday of Advent, when we begin to count the days separating us from the birth of the Savior … we have considered the reality of our Christian vocation: how our Lord has entrusted us with the mission of attracting other souls to sanctity, encouraging them to get close to him, to feel united to the Church, to extend the kingdom of God to all hearts. Jesus wants to see us dedicated, faithful, responsive. He wants us to love him. It is his desire that we be holy, very much his own.”

How do I Order SCRIP?
SCRIP participation is easy. I have attached an order form. Just complete a scrip order form, include payment in a marked envelope and send it into school with your student. Mrs. Zelt will fill your order that day and send it home. SCRIP is also sold after all weekend masses. You can purchase scrip online at raiseright.com. Enrollment Code B6666EF2299. With the new mobile app you can now get scrip ecards in minutes. Walmart, Amazon and Starbucks are just to name a few retailers that are ScripNow! With this new and exciting option you won’t have to wait to get the cards from school or after mass. Information on what cards are ScripNow can also be found at raiseright.com.
Can Friends and Family Participate?
Absolutely! SCRIP is accepted nationwide… please invite family, friends, neighbors and coworkers to participate. Just make sure they write your family’s name on the form so that you get the rebate. You are responsible for delivery of SCRIP to others.
