COMMUNITY DINNER AND CONFIRMATION LAUNCH
Students in grades 8 and above who would like to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in spring 2020 through St Matthew parish are invited to our Confirmation launch on Saturday, October 26. Parents/guardians should also attend, and other family members are invited, too. Join us for the 4:15 Saturday Mass and then come downstairs to the Social Hall for a potluck meal and a short meeting. Please RSVP to Janelle Rohr, Faith Formation coordinator, via email or telephone 651-457-3522.
The Confirmation launch is for the Wednesday evening Faith Formation 8th grade and above students and for Community of Saints 8th graders who plan to be confirmed with St. Matthew. All persons attending the Mass that day, October 26, are welcome to join us in the Social Hall for supper—not just Confirmation families.
