Effectively we will no longer sell SCRIP online. At our last Finance Council meeting the topic of Scrip came up. As many of you know, Scrip is a program that allows the parish to purchase gift cards to various restaurants and retailers at a discounted price. When the program was new, gift cards were not generally available for purchase through other outlets. Now, gift cards can be bought at most grocery and home improvement stores. Over the years, we have seen a sharp decline in the use of the Scrip program. For the past several years, the parish has not even made enough to make it really worth using the program. The amount of work to manage the program and the liability of having all of those cards has caused us to evaluate the program. After consulting the Finance Council and the Parish Council, it has been agreed that we will discontinue the Scrip Program.
We still have a lot of inventory and we will continue to sell cards until they are gone. We will not be ordering any
