GREETERS: St. Matthews parish seeks additional “Greeters”, for Sun. masses. 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. To help, contact: , or the parish office.
OFFERTORY PROCESSION: We have returned to having an Offertory Procession at each mass. If you are willing to bring up the bread and wine occasionally, please speak to a sacristan before mass. You may also call the Parish center or email Mary Leibl at .
MINISTRY OF COMPASSION: Each week, we have several parishioners, listed in the bulletin, and included in the Intercessions at mass, who need our prayers as they deal with health issues. We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to occasionally call to let these families know we care about their loved ones, and if needed, we will continue listing them in the weekly bulletin. We already have 1 volunteer (Jerry) for this ministry and would like to have more volunteers. If you feel this is a ministry you would like to be a part of, please call the Parish Center or email Mary Leibl at
