UPDATES ON PARISH MASTER PLAN

TOWN HALL MEETINGS SCHEDULED

As part of our Master Planning process for a new church, two Town Hall meetings have been scheduled with our Architectural Firm, CCBG Architects. Meetings with the various parish ministries were held in December and now we embark on widening this process with requirements from parishioners in general. All parishioners are invited to attend and voice their wants and needs that they feel should be included in our facility planning  for a new church. Please make every effort to attend.

Dates for the meetings are:

·         English:  Thursday, February 19, 7:00 p.m. Highberger Hall, Brian Cassidy, CCBG will moderate in English.

·         Spanish:  Thursday, March 12, 7:00 p.m., Highberger Hall, Rick Serrano, CCBG will moderate in Spanish.

After we have completed these meetings, a Master Plan will be developed.

WHAT IS THE OLOG SCRIP PROGRAM?

SCRIP is a nationally recognized fundraising program. Retailers sell gift certificates and cards to Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish at a discount. OLOG sells the gift cards at full face value to our parishioners and friends. You redeem the gift cards at face value and the discount is retained by OLOG.

Does your household budget include the following expenses? Groceries? Gasoline? Clothing? Household Needs? Restaurants? Of course it must include some or all. Our SCRIP program is offered by hundreds of local and national retailers - where most of you already shop. With every purchase, you earn revenue for OLOG (helping to offset parish expenses) and OLOGA. (reducing your student's tuition bill!)

We are pleased to announce that Ms. Lisa Freidhof has volunteered to run our SCRIP program. She runs a similar program at Seton High School (for 9 years). She has been assisting since mid-March and is most eager to build a super program here. Thank you Lisa, your assistant Patricia and OLOG volunteer sellers.

As of March 31, 2014, OLOG has generated $39,704 in gross revenue from the sale of SCRIP cards. Cost of SCRIP cards sold to date is $34,568. Thus, our gross margin to date is: $5,136. This is a great start. Whether shopping for clothing, home improvement items, entertainment, electronics, or going out to eat, SCRIP is always available to you. Please continue to use this convenient service and help your parish and academy. Cards are available during the week by stopping in the parish office during normal business hours (M - F; 9:00 am -5:00 pm) and on the weekends on the parish grounds before and after Masses.

THANK YOU!

Fry's Community Rewards Program - THANK YOU!

Dear Parishioners and Friends:

Following is a report of the Fry's VIP Card Program (rebates realized by OLOG members and friends using the reloadable cards) for quarters one and two. In quarter one, 208 families shopped at a Kroger/Fry's store and OLOG was rewarded with a total of $2,656. During quarter two (12/01/13 - 2/28/14), 226 families participated and the parish has received a check in the amount of $2,215.00. Total dollars realized by the parish over these two quarters have amounted to $4,871.00 or $812.00 per month.

The Fry's VIP Card Program is still in effect with a revised program. The last program had approximately 400 OLOG families participating. You can still participate in this new program - just go to the parish website to sign up or call the parish office (480-987-0315). Remember, the more parishioners and friends that shop at Kroger/Fry's stores - the more money OLOG will earn. We are most thankful to all who have shopped and participated in previous programs and strongly encouraged continued and additional participation. Again, thank you all!
