Every weekend during the 2021-2022 school year, the Church of St Matthew has learning packets
available near the front door, by the hymnals, for children ages 3 to 6. The packet, a 9×12 envelope,
contains a colorful pamphlet (called Seeds or Promise) related to the Sunday Gospel, a supplemental
worksheet (such as a coloring page, fill-in-the-blank or matching activity, or a maze), tips for parents
or guardians on teaching the week’s lesson, and basic supplies such as crayons and a pencil. Young
children may use the packet materials during Mass and then the family may take the materials
home. Activities in the pamphlet that require the use of scissors or tape and glue can be done at home.
Thank you for coming to Mass at St Matthew with your children.
