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.
LITURGICAL MINISTERS: 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. Jackie & Jerald 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 our st-matts.org website, on our Facebook page, or on our YouTube channel.
THANK YOU to our Webmaster Richard Schletty!! Many years ago, Richard helped bring our parish into the Computer Age! He was part of a team led by Joe Wenker and Chris Stevens which connected the Parish Center, Church and School to the internet. Richard did purchasing of classroom Apple computers and an Xserve server, and maintained them with the help of Johnny Edwards. Richard is always willing to troubleshoot when a problem arises and is available for computer consulting with the office staff. He purchases discounted software through techsoup.org. He keeps the parish website – st-matts.org – updated, and posts on Facebook. In doing so, the local community is made aware of the many activities occurring in our parish. He has helped us to become more proficient in a computer savvy world!
THANK YOU to Donis who faithfully tends to the plants and flowers in the church. Even during this time of being shut down, she continues to make sure all are watered and kept in good condition.
