Father Al Receives Commendation
It was a fantastic way to kick-off Catholic Schools Week! Father Al was presented with a commendation from Chris Mominey and Sister Edward William Quinn, both of the Office of Catholic Education for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. He received this commendation for his involvement and leadership as pastor of St. Martha Parish School. Way to go, Father Al!

This Thursday (5/28), Saturday (5/30), and Sunday (5/31) will be the last weekend of scrip sales for the 2014-2015 credit year.
The Scrip Office will be closed from Monday, June 1st through Friday, June 19th for inventory purposes. It will re-open on Saturday, June 20th.
Over the summer, we will still be accepting pre-orders. They must be dropped off to the office by Sunday during our normal business hours and your order can be picked up on Thursday of that same week.
Thank you for supporting our Scrip Program! Remember that purchasing scrip benefits you in three ways:
1. It allows you to lower your tuition because of the scrip credit you earn.
2. It allows St. Martha School to keep tuition costs at a lower rate.
3. It helps you earn the "good steward" tuition rate.
