SCRIP thanks you, the SJN Parishioners!

SCRIP is doing our part to support the Good Samaritan Ministry. We have committed up to 50% of our Kroger proceeds to the Good Samaritan Ministry. SCRIP also contributed to the outdoor stations of the cross and replaced the incense dispenser (known as a censer and boat) recently.

So how can you help? In order for SJN to continue to benefit from your Kroger shopping you must renew your reward card during the month of April or obtain one if you haven't been using one!

Please call 1-800-KROGERS or go online https://www.kroger.com/account/enrollCommunityRewardsNow to renew your participation or sign up. The SJN organization number is 83689! Please sign up or renew during April.
