CCD TEACHERS & AIDES ARE NEEDED – The CCD program, which begins the 2018-2019 year on September 8, always welcomes adult Catholics who would like to serve as teachers or substitutes. I ask each of you to pray about this ministry and listen to see if God is calling you. Any young adults who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation are welcome to join us as classroom aides. Not only is this a fun and fulfilling activity, but those volunteer hours look great on your college and scholarship applications. For more information, please contact Debbie Whitlock at (561) 966-1538.
ST. MATTHEW MEN’S CLUB – Meets monthly at 7:30 P.M. every second Wednesday in the Parish Center. St. Matthew Men’s Club is a ministry of St. Matthew Parish, open to all adult male members of the Parish, that provides an atmosphere for fostering Christian fellowship and a sense of community among the men of the Parish aimed at strengthening family life in our Parish. We serve as a support group and provide a structure to assist with various Parish religious celebrations, social events and Parish service projects.
DIOCESAN SERVICES APPEAL (DSA) – The 2019 DSA began on February 10, 2019. Please prayerfully consider making a yearly pledge to help the Parish meet its commitment of $138,000 for 2019.
