FAITH FORMATION TEACHERS NEEDED: The St. Matthew Faith Formation program for public school students in grades 1 to 10 will resume September 20, and we have openings for teachers for the 2023-2024 school year. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45 PM between September and early May. To find out more, call or text Janelle Rohr, 651-242-6004 or send an email to janelle@ st-matts.org. You can also check the insert for more information.
BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKS: As we continue to return to pre-COVID “normalcy” we would like to again offer blood pressure checks once a month. As in the past, blood pressure will be checked after Masses on the third weekend of the month. If you are trained and qualified to check blood pressures, and would be willing to offer this service to our parishioners, please contact Mary at or the parish office at 651-224-9793. The parish has all the equipment needed to offer this service.
STRAWBERRIES: A special thank you to John Riehle! An alumnus of St. Matthew school, former parishioner and past Pastoral Administrator, John volunteered his time to help clean strawberries for the State Fair. Remembering the teaching of the School Sisters of Notre Dame: “When you serve the parish, you serve God!”
FIRST AID KITS: Thank you to Kathy and Scott Goldenstein who have volunteered to look at the first aid kits at our church to inventory what is needed to make sure we have fully stocked first aid kits.
We are a Volunteer Parish!
