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.
PAINTERS: The Charter School wishes to use the 2nd floor of the school bldg. Before this can be possible, painting needs to be done in classrooms & restrooms. If you can help with this painting, please call the Parish Center (224-9793) The use of the 2nd floor in the school will bring added income to the parish!
MUSICIANS I. St Matthews Music Ministry is looking for more singers, cantors, guitarists, keyboardists, string players, & wind instrument players for weekend masses. Contact Jill Kilzer Director of music and Liturgy .
STRAWBERRY CLEANING: Our friends from the Strawberry Booth have informed us that they will have the Strawberry & Cream booth at the fair this year! In past years we have earned over $5000 for a few hours of work each day. The more who volunteer the faster the job is completed each day. We will begin cleaning strawberries at 8 a.m. Wed. Aug. 25th and every morning through Sunday, Sept 5th. If you would like to help our parish earn some needed income, sign-up sheets are on the table in the back of the church. You may also email me at . Or call the Parish Center and leave your name and phone number or email address, with the receptionist or on the answering machine. We would like to know approx. how many people may be available to help. The work is easy, and the socializing is fun! Come and join us for “The Great St. Matthews Get-Together”!
