WEBMASTER Seeking a volunteer admin and content manager for the st-matts.org website. Requires experience with WordPress. Main duties are posting weekly bulletins and inserts and monthly calendar. May also involve cross-posting blog articles to our Facebook page.
Eventually we will be able to resume worshipping in church. We will need volunteers to serve as Lectors and as Eucharistic Ministers at the Saturday 4:15 pm Mass. Will train.
WEEKLY COLLECTION Although we are not able to worship together, the bills still need to be paid. Please continue to financially support our parish by sending your weekly envelope contribution to the parish center. If you would rather contribute electronically, please contact John Riehle at the Parish Center 651-224-9793.
We are a Volunteer Parish!! The future of our parish depends on our dedicated volunteers.
THANK YOU to all who made it possible for the congregation to attend the Sunday Mass online. To 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. Pianist Jill & Cantor Linda who provided the beautiful music. Ginny & Joe who presented the readings. 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 You Tube.
THANK YOU to Richard who prepared the montage of pictures, shown during the opening song at last Sunday’s mass. These were in honor of the 50th anniversary of the first mass, celebrated in our present church, May 1, 1970. The pictures showed our original church on fire, the gutted inside of the church, the razing of the destroyed building and ending with the picture of our present church! We also thank him for posting these pictures on our website and Facebook site Friday May 1st.
THANK YOU to Corrine who prepared the mailing for those who volunteered to do the Census calling.
