Dear Fellow Parishioners,
UPDATE ST. PIUS
The Update St. Pius Campaign is getting closer to being completed. This past summer, we completed redoing two sections of roof over the school area. We also removed all the skylights from those areas. We updated the boys & girls bathrooms off the cafeteria. We replaced bathroom fixtures, bathroom partitions, lighting, tile floor, and repainted. This past week, we completed updating the West Narthex lighting with LED lights and will be doing the North Narthex in the next several weeks; the payback will be less than five years. Our next major project this summer will be doing the West parking lot to improve drainage, repave, and restripe. We currently have over $97,000 cash on hand and the parking lot project will take about $160,000 to complete. We are asking you to help get this last major project funded so we can close the Update St. Pius Campaign by the end of 2016. Thank you to all who helped fund this Campaign as we are almost there!
When you buy Kwik Trip gift/gas cards, the percentage we earn is 5% plus 10% on in-store purchases (excludes: cigarettes, gift cards, gas, lotto/lottery, and postage stamps). Another note, if you go to Fleet Farm, receive the 4cent off coupon or other 4cent off local coupons, Kwik Trip will honor them but you must go into the store.
Another program that benefits us financially is the Scrip Program that is currently being run through the St. Francis Xavier School System. You may buy scrip on-line via this link http://www.xaviercatholicschools.org, click on Scrip on the top of the page, and order from there. Your order may be picked up at the Marquette School Office or through the Central Office at St. Francis Xavier Middle School. Tell them you are from St. Pius X, and that you would like the proceeds to go to St. Pius X School. If you are currently supporting the program for your students and grandchildren, please continue to do so. This is a program which my wife, Julie, and I used quite often when our two sons were enrolled in school; it helped with tuition, and now that they are grown, we decided to continue buying Scrip so St. Pius X would receive the profit.
