St. Matthew’s Rosary Society
Saint Matthew’s Rosary Society has been a parish women’s organization for over 50 years. All women of the parish and their guests are welcome to attend and/or join Rosary Society meetings, which are normally held the second Tuesday of the month at 6:45 pm in the Social Hall. See note above concerning our present COVID-19 pandemic.
The Rosary Society raises funds through dues, a Christmas Bake Sale, Tea and Boutique and donations from serving funeral luncheons in the Saint Matthew’s Social Hall. Some of the funds raised are used at funeral luncheons to provide a comforting atmosphere for grieving families.
Annual donations are made to the annual Saint Matthew’s Fix It Fundraiser Community Dinner, Neighbors Inc., Mary’s Pence, Saint Mary’s Mission in Red Lake, MN, archdiocesan mission needs in Venezuela and clean water in developing countries. The Rosary Society also provides the hosts and wine needed for our worship services. In addition, the Rosary Society coordinates annual parish drives supporting Our Lady of Peace Cancer Home and families in Appalachia.
