HOPE - Helping Our Parish Excel

What is H.O.P.E. and How Does it Work?

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.  The Program purchases gift certificates and debit cards from businesses at a discount, the certificates are then sold back to parishioners at face value and are used just like cash.   St. James, educational program and the Sycamore account receive the discount difference.

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 www.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.    There is also a mobile app at www.MyScripWallet.com

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.   HOPE Gift Certificates are perfect for coaches, teachers, babysitters or anyone who lives in St. James or St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parishes.

You should use H.O.P.E. (Help Our Parish Excel) because it enables you to contribute money to St. James and to educational programs at NO additional cost to you.   If you have a student in St. James/Seton school, 45 cents of each dollar made for the program will go towards YOUR tuition rebate.   We all have to buy groceries and pay bills, so why not use H.O.P.E.?
