COMMUNION TO HOMEBOUND
Do you have family, neighbors, or friends who are unable to attend mass? If you would like to take communion to them in their homes, call the Parish Center or see a Sacristan before mass. If you do not have a pyx one will be provided.
Nearly 3 years ago our parish made the decision to become a Volunteer Parish. It has been through the generosity of our volunteers that we are able to exist. If you have ever considered other ways you felt you could volunteer, some way, other than what you have seen listed, please contact the Parish Center or .
THANK YOU to the 52 parishioners, who attended our Public Mass last Sat. As we continue to film that mass for those who wish to attend the Sunday Mass online, we thank our celebrant Fr. Adrian who offers mass for us and through the words of his homily gives us strength & hope as we live through these trying days. To John who assists where needed and makes sure everyone & everything is where it needs to be. To our Pianist Jill and our Cantor Linda. To Karen & Becky who presented the readings and to Eucharistic Ministers Josie & Ann. Thank you to our ushers Tim & Tom. Thanks to Paul our server, and to Ginny & Mary our Sacristans. We are all especially grateful to Alan!! He came forward last March and offered to film all our services. He then edits the production and puts it out on the web for all to view! He makes it possible for us to come together and worship as a parish, during an exceedingly difficult time. If you were not able to join the service as it happened, you can watch the mass on the st-matts.org. Website/Facebook page or on YouTube.
Thank You to Mary Bejblik, Clara Dubuc, Jeanne Maanum, Janelle Rohr, and Kathy Schowalter for baking apple, and pumpkin pies for Confirmation candidate families to take home after the Confirmation launches on Oct. 10 & Oct 24.
