The program creates an automatic monetary contribution that will go directly to each individual parish as well as a portion being contributed to the clergy retirement fund. We believe that this is a great way for parishioners to earn money for their parish on everyday purchases while finding deals and exclusive discounts from thousands of retailers.
Simply access the site via antiochian.org/rewardsprogram and register with your email. Each family member who shops online should register.
For additional ease, you will not have to access the rewards site prior to making their purchases if youinstall the "Support Button" on your Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer Browser. Once installed, every time you explore the web, approved sites will be indicated by an Orthodox cross. You will also see the contribution percentage donated back on each site. A tutorial video is being added to the site this week.
Please support this and let's take advantage of Christmas shopping. This is the perfect time!
