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.
FAITH FORMATION SUBSTITUTES & HELPERS NEEDED: Public school children grades 1 to 10 will start attending weekly Wednesday evening religion classes at St. Matthew Parish Center in late September. Some classrooms will need helpers on occasion, and the program also needs substitute teachers and substitute front desk persons a few times during the year. Volunteers complete some steps before classes begin in Sept. If you would like more information about these volunteer roles, please contact Faith Formation director Janelle Rohr for details; email or call 651-242-6004. Thank You.
MUSICIANS NEEDED: 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 .
THANK YOU: To the many parishioners who attended the in-person mass last Sat. Thank You to Fr. Adrian who through his homily, gives us strength and hope. To Linda who handled the opening announcements. To our Pianist Phil & Cantor Linda. Lectors Mary & Jerald, Eucharistic Ministers Becky, Joanne & Janelle. Ushers Tom & Tim, Sacristan Mary & slide operator Ginny. Thank you to Alan, who through his talent films our masses, making it possible for many of our parishioners to take part online.
THANK YOU: to the 54+ volunteers who spent 12 mornings cleaning strawberries for the State Fair. Everyone enjoyed the chance to again be together with fellow parishioners & friends. The time literally flew. The volunteers arrived at 8 am and most days the berries were all cleaned and in the cooler before 11 am!! Their volunteerism earned some much-needed income for the parish! Mark your calendars for next year. Wed Aug. 24h – Sunday before Labor Day Sept 4th!
