Our Scrip program currently has over 1300 families registered. About 500 of those families shop on a weekly basis. To date those families have earned over $1,500,000 in credit which can be applied to their school fees (including stationery, lunch fees, Camp Calvary, gym uniforms), Catholic High School & Catholic College tuition, etc. Please read the following for more information:
- The “Scrip” program is a gift certificate program where you buy certificates or gift cards for many different stores and receive a savings, and at the same time, you are helping your parish and school receive a similar savings. For example, if you purchase $100.00 of Acme gift cards, you would receive a $3.00 credit to your account (which can be accumulated up to six years) and our parish/school earns $2.00. The Scrip list (on the other side) has the current stores and percentages you would earn each time you purchase. You can use the gift certificates to make all your purchases. Kohl’s allows you to pay your credit card bill with their gift cards. You may call the rectory if you still have more questions about the program. You can join at any time and if you are a parishioner you will need your church envelope number to sign up.
- You can use the your savings towards any Catholic Institution. Many of our customers have already earned enough to pay a month’s tuition at their child’s high school. You can use your savings to pay family fees and lunch fees at Our Lady of Calvary and grandparents can use the credits to help pay for grandchildren’s grade school tuition, Catholic High School and Catholic College Tuition. All you need to do to “cash in” on your savings is stop in the Rectory during Scrip hours and request payment. The minimum amount of a check must be $50.00. Your check will be written to the Catholic School of your choice and you may pick it up within one week.
- It is mandatory that all families with children attending Our Lady of Calvary School, be active members of our Scrip Program. In order to receive the parishioner rate of tuition for the new school year, you must be registered and active in the Scrip Program.
Sign up Now. Many of our customers are already thinking ahead to Christmas and have started to stock up on Gap, Old Navy and Bath & Body Works, Toys R Us, plus many others. Most of our certificates/gift cards do not have expiration dates. Again, of you have any questions about our Scrip Program, you may call the rectory at 215-637-7515 during Scrip hours and your questions will be answered. However, we ask that you do not call for Scrip availability.
