Principal Letter for January 20th, 2020

Great Scrip News!  Thank you for participating in the scrip program.  The program earned nearly $24,000 for St. Bernard School and school families in scrip credits from June 1 to December 31, 2019.  What a great benefit to so many.  Over 120 school families received a total of $11,795 of credits toward their school tuition. 

Thank you to volunteers Please extend a huge thank you to the dedicated volunteers who make this fundraising opportunity available.  They are the backbone of the scrip program.  None of the payouts would be possible without our volunteers.

Would you like to help? 

Our greatest need is for scrip sellers in particular at the 4:00 Saturday Mass.  This is the most flexible and convenient way to volunteer.  You determine when you want to sell, how often you want to sell and where you want to sell.  The commitment is only about an hour of your time per selling session and you can wrap it around your Mass attendance.  Committing to sell even once per month or every two months makes a big impact. Please contact Ann Selk at scrip@stbernardcong.org to set up a short training at your convenience either at one of the Masses or other times. Training will be available this Saturday, January 25 at 3:30 in the church narthex.  Meet at the scrip table.

THE GOAL IS TO SIGN UP AT LEAST 5 NEW SCRIP VOLUNTEERS BY THE END OF MAY.

 Any questions? Need help signing up online, accessing MyScripWallet or volunteering? Contact Ann Selk at scrip@stbernardcong.org
