“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
The weekend of July 18/19 we will resume worshipping in church. As we look at the guidelines put forth by the Archdiocese, that we need to follow as we begin a “New Normal”, we will need additional volunteers to serve as Ushers at both Masses! We also continue to request volunteers to serve as Lectors at the Saturday 4:15 pm Mass.
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 Mary Bejblik & family who decorated the church to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost! To John who assists where needed and makes sure everyone & everything is where it needs to be. To Pianist Jill & Cantors Linda and Anthony who provided the beautiful music. To Jeanne and Anthony 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 YouTube.
THANK YOU to Scott & Maribel who painted the walls in the Social Hall and hallways. Also, to Tom & John who installed the stalls in restrooms. The lower level of the church is beginning to look “new” again!
