Campaign Prayer

Compassionate and loving God, You have been generous to us and have blessed us. You continue to be generous in sharing Your gifts with us. Strengthen us in faith. Grant us the spirit of sacrifice so that, with Your continuing grace, we may provide for the needs of our diocese and look to our future united in faith, confident in hope and sincere in our love and so give You glory and praise. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


Saint Matthew Catholic Church is sponsoring three (3) Holy Hours in the months of October, November and December for the faithful outcome of our participation in the Diocesan Forward in Faith Campaign.  These Holy Hours are on the first Wednesday of the next three months: Wednesday, October 1, 2014; Wednesday, November 5, 2014 and Wednesday, December 3, 2014.  All three Holy Hours run from 7:30 - 8:30 P.M. in the St. James Prayer Pavilion / Outdoor Stations of the Cross area of the parish (weather permitting).  The Holy Hours are to seek God's Will and to show gratitude for God's Provision as we are challenged and affirmed to position the Diocese of St. Petersburg and the Parish of St. Matthew Church for further growth and effectiveness!  Please join us as together we move Forward in Faith.
