COVID-19 Update for GAGC
At this time and until further notice, all GAGC sales are suspended. The HGA Rectory is closed until further notice. If you have a Special Order that needs to be picked up, please contact Tricia Christ at email@example.com or 610-451-1959 and we may be able to make arrangements for you to pick up your Special Order.
However, even though regular, in-person, GAGC sales are suspended at this time - participants can still purchase GAGC online via the ShopWithScrip website at www.shopwithscrip.com.
Online sales will be for electronic gift cards (eCards or ScripNow), re-loadable physical gift cards you already have, and/or ReloadNow. No orders via the online option for physical gift cards will be accepted at this time as the rectory is closed and physical cards would not be able to be distributed.
Payment for online orders is by PrestoPay or Credit Card. Personal checks will not be accepted for online purchases.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We ask for your patients during this time of crisis. Thank you.
Do you shop at GIANT, REDNERS, WEIS, SHEETZ, or WALMART?
Every time you use a gift card purchased through the GAGC Program to pay for your groceries, prescriptions, or even fill your gas tank, you can help raise money for your parish! We maintain an in-stock inventory of gift cards for Giant, Redners, Weis, Sheetz, & Walmart. Stop by before or after any weekend mass to purchase in-stock gift cards. In-stock gift cards are also available for purchase at the Rectory Monday-Friday between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Please note the rectory is closed for lunch from 12-12:30 pm each day.
How does GAGC work?
The stores participating in the GAGC Program allow our parish to buy their gift cards at a discount. The parish then resells the gift cards to you at face value. For example, simply pay $10.00 (cash or check) and receive a $10.00 gift card to your favorite grocery store. It doesn't cost you anything extra! You are simply using a gift card rather than cash for your purchases at these stores.
WHAT DENOMINATIONS DO THE GIFT CARDS COME IN?
For your convenience, gift cards are available in many denominations, for example:
GIANT: $10, $20, $50, and $100
REDNERS: $20, $50, and $100
WEIS: $10, $20, $50, and $100
SHEETZ: $25, $50, and $100
WALMART: $25, $50, & $100
WHEN AND WHERE CAN I BUY GIFT CARDS?
You may purchase gift cards to GIANT, REDNERS, WEIS, SHEETZ, and WALMART Monday thru Friday at the rectory during regular business hours and before/after each weekend Mass at the GAGC table located in the church vestibule.
In addition to the gift cards listed above, the GAGC Program also offers gift cards to over 150 other retail stores, pharmacies, gas stations, and restaurants. These gift cards are ordered separately (typically twice a month) using the special GAGC Order Form. These gift cards are accepted nationwide and many can be used online. Visit www.shopwithscrip.com to browse the hundreds of gift cards & electronic gift cards that are available.
GAGC order envelopes and order forms are available in the school and rectory offices as well as the church vestibule. You can also print a copy of the GAGC Order Form here.

Tuition Credit Program
The GAGC Tuition Credit Program provides families with the opportunity to reduce their Catholic school tuition. HGA Parish generously splits the percentage returned on gift cards with participating school families. Catholic University and Seminary students in the Diocese of Allentown are also eligible. Is your child in PREP? The PREP Fee Credit Program provides families with the opportunity to reduce or eliminate PREP fees. Enrollment is easy.
For more information on the GAGC Program, contact Tricia Christ at (610) 451-1959 or email@example.com or call the rectory.
