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
FAITH FORMATION SUBSTITUTES & HELPERS NEEDED: Public school children grades 1 to 10 have started attending weekly Wednesday evening religion classes at St. Matthew Parish Center. 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. 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 .
FUNERAL MINISTRY: The church of St. Matthew invites you to be a part of a compassionate ministry providing hospitality to grieving families. You are needed to help set up and serve post-funeral luncheons to families and their guests. If you can help, please call either Becky Montgomery 651-292-0521 or Suzanne Clark 612-819-3752.
GREETERS: Now that we have two masses each weekend, St. Matthews seeks additional “Greeters” to extend a warm welcome to those arriving for Mass. Your friendly smile and enthusiasm for the Church of St. Matthew parish are all that’s needed. To help, contact , , or the parish office.
FALL CHURCH CLEANING: Due to the pandemic, it has been 2 yrs since we gathered on a Sat. morning to clean inside the church and on the church grounds! We will gather Sat. Oct 16th at 9am. As the old saying goes – Many hands make light work! The more volunteers we have, the sooner we will finish. This would also be a good opportunity for Confirmation students who will be needing service hours!!
