Buying Scrip Can Benefit Our Parish!


 The Scrip program, a program where you purchase gift cards which are redeemable at local and chain retail stores - such as Kohl’s, Target, Subway, Festival Foods, St. Patrick’s Book Store, and the list goes on. The complete list is available here. How does this help our parish? Purchase Scrip at the Central Office at St. Francis Middle School, and designate St. Pius as the recipient of the rebate. This program has been used for years by the St. Francis Xavier school system as a form of subsidy toward tuition, but can now be used as a way to increase your donation to St. Pius. Gift Cards make a great gift - every college student would love to receive a Starbucks, Subway, Jimmy John’s or iTunes card in the mail this Valentine’s Day!

Altar Server Trainer Needed!!


A volunteer is needed to help to train our Altar Servers. This position would involve initial training of new altar servers and follow up with additional training as needed. The requirements are a loving attitude,  and a keen eye for watching the new and more experienced servers at Mass. Further, this position would require working with Father Tom and Father William to see that the training meets their standards. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Carol Ferree in the church office at 733-0575, or at spxvolunteer@gmail.com.

Kwik Trip Gas Cards


Join the Kwik Trip Challenge!!!

For every $100 you buy, you get a one chance to be put in a raffle for a $50 Kwik Trip card.

This is a weekly drawing.


Starting in 2015 the Kwik Trip program has been revised. We will now receive a 5% rebate, plus 10% back on purchases made within the store, excluding gas, alcohol and tobacco products. Prior to the end of 2014 the Finance Council approved the purchase of enough Kwik Trip cards at the 10% rebate rate to last through our fiscal year, which ends June 30th, so card purchased today will still provide the 10% profit for our parish.


DID YOU KNOW? You may use your 4-cent-off coupon from Fleet Farm at Kwik Trip - just go into the store to turn in your coupon and use your Kwik Trip card to pay for your purchase.


To use the card, simply swipe the card at the pump and press the “credit” button when prompted. You do not need to worry about over filling because the pump will shut off automatically when the card limit is reached. The card can then be discarded.


Kwik Trip cards may be purchased after Saturday and Sunday morning Masses or at the Parish Office. Please consider this opportunity to earn cash for the parish.
