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.
PROJECT SLIDE DECK During Filming of Sat. 4:15pm Mass: Need a 2nd volunteer to project, by use of an iPad, a prepared slide deck, containing the words to prayers & songs. These slides appear on the screen during airing of Sun. 10:15am Streamed Mass. An iPad is available. Training will be provided. If you know of someone who enjoys working with computers, please share this opportunity with them. It is preferable that more than one person would be available to take part in this ministry.
THANK YOU to the 123 parishioners who attended the in-person mass last Sat. To Fr. Adrian who through his homily, gives us strength and hope. To John who assists where needed and makes sure everyone & everything is where it needs to be. To our Pianist Jill & Cantor John. Lector Mooreen, Eucharistic Ministers Kathy, Tim & Mary, Ushers Tom, Tim, Greg & Doris. Sacristan Mary, Server Paul, and Slide Opr. Ginny. Thank you to Alan, who through his talent films our masses, making it possible for many of our parishioners to take part on-line!
WE THANK those who brought the Eucharist from mass to parishioners or to their family & friends. Ann, Ginny, Tim, Delfina, Sue, & Dave.
THANK YOU to John Riehle! John is a “Son of St. Matthew parish!” A graduate of the parish school. The School Sisters of Notre Dame impressed on their students the importance of “Giving Back” to one’s parish. As a parish we are fortunate that John learned this lesson well! He has returned multiple times to serve as our parish administrator! He has helped to negotiate a new roof for the church, tenants for our school bldg. and guided us through all the guidelines to deal with Covid-19. John worked with Alan to make it possible to “stream” masses to all unable to attend. He will no doubt continue to watch theses masses and perhaps send emails with personal suggestions! We hope so. No matter where life takes him, he will always be a part of St. Matthew’s parish. He has helped to make the parish who we are today! So, we return to our roots and say to him – Auf Wiedersehen, Viel Gluck! (Goodbye & Good Luck!)
