GREETERS: St. Matthew parish seeks “Greeters” for Sun. 10:15am mass. We welcome people who are able to extend a warm welcome to those arriving for Mass. Your friendly smile and enthusiasm for the Church of St. Matthew are all that is needed. We thank Josiah & Isabel who has been our Sunday mass greeter! To volunteer contact: , or or the parish office.
CLERICAL: Occasionally we will have a parish-wide mailing. At those times we call on some of our office volunteers to help. They fold letters, put materials in the envelopes and sort by zip code. If you would like to come into the office to help with this project, email Mary at or call the Parish Center and leave your name and contact information.
PRAYER LINE: We are seeking a volunteer to monitor the Parish Prayer Line. In this role, your phone number would be published, without your name, in the parish bulletin under Prayer Line. People will call, asking to have the names of people in need of prayers placed on the Prayer Line. You will then call volunteers who have already offered their time to pray for those requests. Having an answering system will be helpful. If willing to volunteer, please contact Mary Leibl – or the parish office.
THANK YOU: To all the volunteers who spent 12 days, Aug 25th – Sept 4th, cleaning strawberries for the booth at the State Fair.
