Annual Build-A-Sock Drive


The St. Matthew High School & Middle School youth ministry is proud to announce the 2015 “Build-a-Sock” campaign is underway and once again we are asking for your support.

The Knights of Columbus Council #11226 have agreed to provide new socks for the homeless and the youth of our parish are planning on filling them with toiletries that we are asking our parish members to contribute.  This campaign is a wonderful cause for the less fortunate and it also provides an opportunity for our youth to truly experience gift giving during the Christmas season.

There will be receptacles located at the North and South entrances of the church starting November 29th through December 13th for anyone to dispense their contributions.

Reason to Come Back to the Church

People want to have meaning in life. In the busyness of today’s world, many people realize that their lives have lost a sense of meaning or purpose. They may ask themselves “what is life all about?” Why do I do the things I do?” There is also widespread confusion in our society in areas of morality and truth. The Catholic Church offers hope which gives meaning to our existence. This leads to eternal life.

Childhood memories can surface as well. Many people will tell you that childhood memories of being connected to God pop up in later life. They start to ask themselves if it is possible to recapture the simplicity of faith they once had. They may ask if God is really watching me. The secularization of society leads people away from their spiritual side. The Catholic Church offers both mystical and religious experiences. These experiences feed the mind, heart, body, and soul.
