St. Matthew’s Fall Festival, September 14-15, 2019
Only 3 weeks until our annual Parish Fall Festival!!
Time is short and donations have been light!
We need everyone’s help to make this another successful event!
DONATIONS: We will be pleased to accept your donations before and after mass every Saturday and Sunday. Please bring them to the back of the church. Donations during the week, Monday through Thursday 9am—4pm will be accepted at the Parish Center.
Still looking for donations…we received a handful last week, but just a handful. The Fall Festival is our parish’s largest fundraiser, it happens with the help of every single parishioner, me, you, and the person the seat next you at Mass. Not to mention, it’s fun!! Let’s go fellow parishioners; let’s be bigger and better than last year, please go shopping, bring your donations to Mass or the Parish Center. And thank you for caring for and supporting Saint Matthew’s.
If you don’t like to shop and want to make a cash donation and let the Silent Auction ladies shop, they will be happy to do so, just mark your donation as such.
