Current Events

MCB & RECTORY ROOF REPLACEMENT – Work has begun on the Roof Replacement Project, and financial help is desperately needed. Only $84,157 has been donated to date for the $600,000 cost of replacement of the MCB and Rectory roofs. In order to commence the work, it has been necessary to withdraw money from the Parish Savings account. Special envelopes are located at all exits of the MCB. Please consider donating to this desperately needed repair.


Join us on Sunday, June 11th after the 12 Noon Mass for a Eucharistic Procession that will continue outdoors on our church grounds.


NEW TO THE PARISH OR NEVER REGISTERED?? – Are you registered in the Parish? Please do not assume that you are registered in the Parish just because you attend Mass here. If we have no record of your Parish membership it could be quite embarrassing to us, or to you or your family, when someone wishes to make wedding plans, have a baby baptized, or if you have been asked to act as a sponsor for baptism or confirmation. Please fill out the Registration Form below and mail it to the Parish office, or place it in the collection basket.

CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION TAX INFORMATION FOR DONATIONS – Contributions from an individual retirement account (IRA) pre-existed the stimulus bills and continue to be an attractive means for making a charitable gift. After being waived in 2020, required minimum distributions (RMDs) from IRAs resumed in 2021. Even though the age at which the RMD kicks in has been raised to 72, you can still make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) starting at age 70½. If you are aged 70½ or older, you may authorize your IRA administrator to transfer up to $100,000 per year (cumulatively) to one or more qualifying charities (St. Matthew qualifies as such). The amount you transfer will not be added to your taxable income, and it will count towards your mandatory distribution requirement. Whether you are required to make a minimum distribution or not, you can, at any age, designate St. Matthew Parish as the beneficiary of all, or a percentage, of your IRA. Completing a simple change of beneficiary form from your IRA administrator will allow funds to pass to St. Matthew’s tax-free after your lifetime.



2023 DIOCESAN SERVICES APPEAL (DSA) –  The 2023 DSA Appeal has begun and our commitment for 2023 has increased to $143,000.   To date, $83,763 has been donated. Please make a monthly pledge to help us meet this year’s commitment.


BINGO IS BACK! – Bingo has started up again every Thursday in the Parish Center. Doors open at 5:30 and play begins at 6:30. Refreshments available. Appropriate sanitation measures will be observed.  Bring a Friend and make friends too!


E-Mail Address Project:  The Parish is trying to update its database of e-mail addresses to facilitate communications in a more cost-effective manner. We can potentially save over $1500 by sending an e-mail versus mailing a letter to all our parishioners.  ADDED NOTE:  If you have disconnected a landline or changed cellphone numbers in the last few years, please call the Parish Office at 966-8878 and update your phone number and e-mail address. We thank you in advance for your help.
