Electronic Payments of Oregon:

  • Jed Leper presented information about EPO and distributed informational flyers. Any business that processes credit cards can sign-up with EPO and maintain their same pricing structure, but have half of their normal fees donated to St. Mary Parent Club. This is a way to raise funds for St. Mary with the only work being the initial business contact.
  • We currently have 3 businesses signed up and are on schedule to make over $1,500 with no volunteers needed.

Open Forum:

  • Question about why Share Hour logging system changes were made this year.
  • The school has maintained the old Centre system just for the purpose of logging Share hours so the team wanted to try a different option
  • High hopes for capturing your fundraiser share hours automatically with SignUp Genius
  • Members of Fundraiser Committees received share hour reports this month showing that all of their hours for the year are completed (no need to log hours for the year).


We’re doing pretty well with SCRIP, the rebates earned are on pace with prior years, and at the moment, surpassing prior years.

What does this mean? SCRIP is working for us! Don’t need tuition rebates? That’s ok, please purchase SCRIP and help fundraise for the Parent Club. We have a HUGE opportunity for FREE MONEY for our school, and we should ALL be participating to earn the most for the school.

There’s a lot of room for improvement. We really can get more families and friend using this program. YOU can use the program. Your FAMILY can use the program. EVERYONE can use the program!

We have great support from Postal Connections, who graciously keeps a box of SCRIP there for convenience, and we also sell at church. We have many people in this community supporting our school through SCRIP, and I know we can get even more! Some of the most regular SCRIP consumers don’t even have kids at this school anymore, yet they still support our program. We should also be doing our best to support our program and our school.

If you use SCRIP, share your knowledge with others. Tell them how EASY it is to use, and encourage people to purchase gift cards through our program. Groceries and gas are the easiest by far, but anything you can encourage others to purchase is great, too! Any card we sell earns the school money, and it all adds up.

BOTTOM LINE: We can earn more FREE MONEY! Share your SCRIP knowledge and PURCHASE SCRIP!

Alpha Series

The Alpha series is coming to Stayton and the Santiam Vicariate! Alpha is a series that introduces people to the Christian faith in a new way by exploring life’s biggest questions in a non-threatening environment. For Christians, it helps inspire them in their faith and bring them to a more meaningful relationship with Christ. The series is meant for anyone, whether you currently feel inspired in your faith or you feel like you’re just going through the motions. It’s an open and honest discussion about life, meaning and faith. It’s also perfect for inviting others back to their faith in a non-threatening way. The series will start on February 22nd and run on Thursday evenings from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm at the Immaculate Conception Parish Center. Childcare/children’s programs and dinner will be provided for the whole family.

To find out more about Alpha you can visit the group’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SantiamVicariateAlpha/ or the Archdiocese of Portland’s Alpha website at https://famlife.archdpdx.org/alpha-in-a-catholic-context.

If you feel called to help in some way, there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Please call one of the parish offices of Immaculate Conception, St. Boniface or St. Mary Shaw parishes to learn how you can be involved.
