Reloadable King Soopers & Safeway Gift Cards

RELOADABLE KING SOOPER & SAFEWAY GIFT CARDS - This is free money for our school! Everyone needs groceries? They can also be used for fuel!

Sts. Peter and Paul School began using re loadable King Soopers gift cards last January. Must purchase a re loadable card at the school or parish office. This original card will be valued at $5.00 and must be purchased from us.

Reload (add value to) your King Sooper card at any time at the store. Cards must be reloaded in a separate transaction prior to your groceries being purchased. If you reload at Customer Service or at a non-checkout location it will take about 5 minutes for the funds to be updated available on the card for example: reload first and then shop.

Cards can be reloaded using cash or credit card up to a value of $500 and can be used indefinitely.

Never throw away a re loadable card even with a zero balance on it. These cards are different than what we have previously sold. If you lose or throw away a re loadable card you will need to purchase a new one from the school or parish. Re loadable cards will have a special sticker to easily identify them.

RELOADABLE SAFEWAY GIFT CARDS will be sold in the school and parish office in a couple weeks. This concept is the same as the King Soopers Reloadable Gift Cards as well. Sure hope you will help us by purchasing gift cards THROUGH US. Thank you for your continued support!

Sts. Peter and Paul School (SPPS), an Elementary Catholic School, in the Metropolitan Denver Area Catholic School system, under the jurisdiction of Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila, and the direction of Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Mr. Richard Thompson, and Father Jason Thuerauf, Pastor, and Sr. Mary Patrice, O.C.D., Principal of SPPS, attests that this school does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its admission policy, treatment of students, and its employment practices. Further, this school does not discriminate against students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, and admits them to the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available to all students in the school in its education policies, its admission policies, its scholarship and loan programs, and its athletic and other administered programs.





Giving for the Kingdom of God Sts. Peter and Paul Parish has partnered with the Catholic Foundation of  Northern Colorado to help raise funds for our capital campaign to improve the  school environment.  We are currently working on Stage 1 to raise money for  new windows and air conditioning. Sts. Peter and Paul Parish opened a Fund at the Catholic Foundation for the sole  benefit of our school.  The Foundation will generously contribute up to $10,000 in matching funds toward any monies donated to this new fund by you, our  parishioners, school families and alumni.  All checks must be made payable to The Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado with SPPS written on the memo line  of the check to be considered for the matching funds.  By designating gifts from wills, estate planning and special contributions you can  help us grow this fund for years to come.  Your gift can make a profound impact for our Catholic faith along with the needs of our parish.  Please contact Bud Laber (303-468-9885) at The Catholic Foundation as soon as possible to find out how you can help us take advantage of this tremendous opportunity.  Visit our website at:


The parish subsidizes the school and we are always thankful for their generous assistance. Last year, an additional appeal went out to ask any parishioners or school families who are able to adopt a student with any financial assistance possible. We have had families withdraw for financial reasons. Call Sr. Mary Patrice Matamoros  at school if you can help our children.
