April 1, 2020 report: closures and cancellations due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
PARISH OFFICE CLOSED, MASSES CANCELED. To protect the health of our staff, volunteers, parishioners, and Father Steve, the parish office will be closed and all Masses are cancelled. This includes funeral and baptisms. Father Steve and John Riehle will revisit the situation in a couple of weeks and you will again be notified of their decision.
Father Adrian will celebrate Mass online on Sunday at 10:15 am via Facebook and YouTube. Use either of these methods to watch:
1 ) Go to facebook.com/churchofstmatthew. You must be a Facebook user to view this broadcast.
2) Go to our Church of St. Mattthew YouTube channel
The Mass will be available on the parish website shortly after the premiere broadcast is complete.
In this time of anxiety, self-quarantine and self-distancing, our Church of Saint Matthew, must continue paying our normal expenses, just as everyone else does. To that end, we ask that you consider using electronic giving, and if this is not possible, please remember to send in your weekly envelopes through the regular mail. We thank you in advance for your generosity. Call John Riehle at the parish office if you want to begin electronic giving. You can also email John with your intentions. One other option is to use the PayPal Code contained in the weekly giving count in the bulletin and on our website’s Donate page.
We will hope and pray to be together again soon. God’s blessing and good and safe health to us all.
STATIONS OF THE CROSS: CANCELED. Please attend services on the internet or cable TV.
FISH FRY: CANCELED. Due to the COVID-19 virus, the Fish Fry must be canceled completely for 4/3 and 4/10. We thank all those who came to dine with us at the first dinners and those who came to the Drive–up service. We will be back next year, better than ever!!
