2024-25 School Calendar

Holy Moments

Tell a mentor in your life what they mean to you. If you’re not sure who to thank, consider this: Who gave you the best piece of advice recently? Take some time to reach out to that person and let them know how they helped you! And remember, some moments are holy. Some moments are unholy. And you decide!

Tips to Create This Holy Moment:
– Do something special to say thank you—sing a song, create a piece of art, or bake a treat to show your appreciation!
– Write a personal letter explaining how this person has helped you.
– Say extra prayers for this mentor, asking God to bless them.


Healthy, Hunger Free Kids

Fundraisers

SCRIP

What is Scrip? “Scrip” turns everyday shopping into cash for the St. Patrick Church and School. Purchase gift cards at face value in advance to use at checkout, instead of paying with credit, debit card, check or cash.

How Does It Work? Purchase gift cards at face value from local merchants who designate their own discount percentage ranging from 1.5% to 30%. The discount amount translates to profit for the St. Patrick!

  • $50 Marcus Theatres gift card at 8% = $4 St. Patrick profit
  • $100 Walmart gift card at 2.% = $2.50 St. Patrick profit

Purchase SCRIP before shopping by filling out this form and turning it into the parish office or call in your order to the rectory at 402.466.2752 and we can prepare your order ahead for you. SCRIP can  also be purchased at the parish office or after weekend masses.

We’re excited to share that our school is participating in Cash for Classrooms, part of Casey’s Rewards. This opens up St. Patrick School to new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students.
The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you buy from Casey’s and use their rewards program you can simply turn your points into a donation to our school.
Help St. Patrick School make the most of this program and learn more at Caseys.com/schools.
