In the Parish of St. Matthew, people worship, marry, bring their children for the Sacraments and come to assist the journey of family and friends into God's eternal kingdom.
We have many ministries in the
church of St. Matthew. These ministries are: Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers, Ushers, and Altar Servers. All of the ministries are vital to
our Parish. Service to these ministries does
not have to be every week.
We have rotating schedules to fit all schedules.
If you are interested in being part of a ministry
in your parish fill out the sign-up sheets in the back of the church. If you should have any questions regarding any of these ministries,
please contact Gina Mastrangelo.
