STEWARDSHIP: “Sharing God’s Gifts”
As Catholics, we give in gratitude for what God has
given to us; this is what motivates us. We give because of faithfulness. The offertory collection for Sunday, February 22, 2015 was
$12,059.00 with 162 envelopes used. God bless you for your
generosity and support of your St. Matthew Parish! In using your
offertory envelopes each week, please make sure your envelope
number is listed on it. Also, please make sure we have your correct address to avoid unnecessary additional fees for returned
mail from the post office. If you do not know your envelope number, please call the Parish Office and we will gladly give it to you. If
you are currently receiving offertory envelopes in the mail and are
not using them each week, please call the Parish Office to advise.
2015 Archbishop’s Charity and Development Drive
‘One in Faith, One in Hope, One in Charity’
Together, We Change Lives
A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who
has made a commitment to the 2015 Archbishop’s
Charities and Development Drive (ABCD). To date,
189 parish families have responded. However, we
need the support of ALL members of St. Matthew
Parish if we are to be successful in reaching our parish goal of
$71,749.00. Pledges totaling $70,249.08 have been made so far.
Now is the time to make a return to the Lord for all He has
given us. Even a small gift can make a big difference in the lives of
those in need. Whether your gift is $50, $365, $1,000 or even
$5,000, it is truly impactful and appreciated. If you have not yet
responded to the 2015 ABCD, please consider making a gift - a gift
from the heart - by using the pledge envelopes available in the pews
and at the church entrances. Thank you for all that you do and the
spirit in which you do it! God bless you!
