Bingo is held every Sunday at 5 p.m. and every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., unless notified in the bulletin. Volunteer adults, 21 years and older, are needed as members of Bingo teams to perform a variety of duties, including kitchen help. Volunteer on a consistent basis, or once in a while as time permits. Every school family should make an effort to volunteer at Bingo a few times a year. This important fund-raising ministry supports our parish and parish school, making it possible to offer a multi-child discount for families at our school.
Ministers needed to: sell instant lottery tickets, or work in the kitchen, or handle money in the bingo “bank”
Time required: one two-hour shift
Gift Card Program
This is a “dollar for dollar” school/parish fundraiser. The school/parish purchases gift cards from local businesses at a discount. The school/parish then sells the gift cards to the families in the St. Francis Xavier community at face value. For example, the school/parish buys a $100 gift card from Speedway for $96 and sells the card for $100; the card can then be spent like cash. The school/parish makes $4. There are many merchants from which to choose. People are needed to participate in the program by purchasing the cards. Gift cards are available after weekend Masses.
Ministers needed to: sell gift cards after Mass
Time required: about 20 minutes after Mass
