VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES & PARISH NEEDS
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8
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.
The church will be decorated for the Christmas season after the 4:15pm mass next Sat, Dec. 19th. Confirmation students have been asked to help, and this will help to fulfill their Service Projects needed for Confirmation. We also invite any parishioners who are able, to stay and help decorate the Christmas trees, bring statues from the chapel and decorate the sanctuary for the Christmas Feast!
THANK YOU to the 52 parishioners, who attended our Public Mass Sat Nov 28th. 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 Ellen and Jerald who presented the readings and to Eucharistic Ministers Karen and Mary. Thank you to our ushers Doris, James & Tim, and Servers/Sacristans Ginny & Mary. 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 continues to investigate ways to continually improve production! Alan 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 the Ahern family who donated the wreaths and garlands for our Advent & Christmas decorations!
