Mr. Jim Zaccario, Director of Advancement


Blessed Trinity is very blessed to have so many people who support our mission to provide our students the very best education that is rooted in our Catholic faith.  There are many ways to give to Blessed Trinity to support this very important endeavor.  And there are many tuition assistance programs for our families to take advantage of.




SCRIP is the easiest way to help pay your tuition! Register at the rectory for your SCRIP account and then start purchasing gift cards to a variety of retailers where you’re already spending your hard earned money.  By using SCRIP you will earn 1% to 10% of gift card purchase in tuition credit! SCRIP can be purchased through the rectory, through school, or online for convenient rectory pick up. There are several SCRIP items that are cash and carry and several that can be ordered.  See the following lists for details:
