HOPE - Helping Our Parish Excel

WHAT IS H.O.P.E.?

H.O.P.E. (Helping our Parish Excel) is an ongoing, fund-raising program which benefits St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parishes individually-and the education programs they share-Adult Education, St. James/Seton Parish Religious Education (P.R.E.) and St. James/Seton School.  At St. James, profits from the HOPE program helped us afford the Bell Tower and bells!

HOPE is part of a national SCRIP program wherein gift cards/certificates are purchased by the parish at various discounts from vendors and resold to parishioners at full face value.   This program benefits the parish and its educational programs and costs parishioners nothing extra.   In addition, a certain portion of profits from sales can be designated toward school tuition.   You may order directly through the Great Lakes Scrip Center Web site by logging on to ShopWithScrip.com.   For your initial sign in, you will need to use the Family Signup option to create your family account.   Username will be your current email address.   Password is to be determined by you.   Enrollment code is #F553DFF21229.

WHEN AND WHERE CAN I BUY H.O.P.E. CERTIFICATES?

You can buy certificates on weekends before and after the Masses at both parishes, weekdays from the school (when in session) or at the St. James or St. Elizabeth Ann Parish Offices during office hours.

WHY SHOULD I USE H.O.P.E.?

Use H.O.P.E. because it enables you to give money to your parish and education programs whenever you shop or pay bills.  Because it does not require you to contribute more money, H.O.P.E. is a unique form of stewardship.  For every $100.00 in H.O.P.E. certificates you purchase, you add $5.00  (or more, depending on the discount percentage) to the financial support of your church or parish educational programs -- AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU!
If you make H.O.P.E. a regular habit and a commitment, with very little effort you can make a big difference and Help Our Parish Excel.
