ACE Program (Aiding Catholic Education)
This is a certificate program handled by parents who serve as volunteers. The parish acts as a broker of gift certificates/cards and receives a percentage of the face value for each one sold. The percentage varies according the store or restaurant. By purchasing gift certificates/cards to be used at businesses where you would be spending money anyway, you are able to generate funds for the school. There is absolutely no cost to you; just purchase the gift certificate and use it as you would any other gift certificate. The Ace Certificates also make wonderful gifts and stocking stuffers.

Schnucks eScrip Card is part of the ACE program. The Parish Rectory has the application form or you can stop at any Schnucks and apply. Once you have your card, you simply have it scanned with every visit to the store and a percentage of the total purchased generates funds for St. Stephens.
The ACE program and Schnucks eScrip last fiscal period (ending July’16) generated $20,917.
