The Community of St. Matthew includes more than parishioners. Loaves and Fishes, St. Mary’s Clinic, Casa Guadalupana, People of Praise and Quantum STEAM Academy all benefit from St. Matthew’s presence on the West Side. And these programs serve many people, well beyond the parish membership.
We need strong parish leadership to continue to be the Good Samaritan on St. Paul’s West Side. We will have 5 vacancies on the Parish Council this spring, and are looking for replacements: people who care about the parish as well as the community around us, people who want us all to thrive. Will you consider joining the Council for a 3-year term, beginning June 1?
Watch for details about joining the Council in a future bulletin, and contact Joanne Smith at (651) 270-9748 if you have questions or would like to attend a meeting to learn how the Council functions.
