NOW THIS IS EXCITING - PARISH SCRIP PROGRAM!
The parish scrip prgram began in November 2006. As we begin 2012,
the program has raised $21,062.17!
The program is now being STREAMLINED. We will
carry several CASH AND CARRY CARDS
each week. If you would
like to special order other cards, you may do so the last weekend of
the month. The cards would then be ready for pickup the following
weekend. The program involves "gift
cards" or "cash
cards". Anyone who has any interest in St. Stan's
Parish can help us. You simply purchase a card from the parish
and pay for it with cash or a check. The card can then be used as
you please for the business from which the card was purchased OR
give them as gifts
for someone else. The parish receives back a percentage of the
value of the card - AND THAT IS HOW WE MAKE A PROFIT!
Cards from franchised businesses are good
anywhere the business is located. For a list of the "CASH AND
CARRY" cards we will carry each weekend,
