St. Peter's Scrip:
Don’t forgot after Sunday’s 9:00 mass to swing by fellowship hall for coffee and donuts as well as script. What is "Script" you might ask? The process is easy: Gift Certificates are bought from local and national retailers at a discount. They are then sold to you for full face value. You use the Gift Certificates as you would cash. The profits are then split between you (tuition) and St. Peters School. Don’t have a child in St. Peter’s school that’s ok, you can select from 5 different options. You can hold for future tuition, Give your credit to another family (grandchild...), Assist A Student Fund, Classroom enhancements (all profits goes directly to St. Peters School, or Cathedral of St. Peters Parish. It doesn’t cost you anything, you are just using gift cards to pay for things you would already be paying for. Just fill out this form http://www.cathedralofstpeter.org/files/files/script%20registration.docx.What an easy way to help the school and its students.
