Help for Hurricane Irma's Victims
St. Matthew's St. Vincent de Paul group would like to remind all parishioners that we are here as a resource for any parishioner who may be negatively impacted by Irma. Many may be struggling financially because of lost wages and be in need of food or other necessities. Please encourage those who might need some assistance to call Anne Koster in the parish office. She will relay any messages to St. Vincent de Paul group. The St. Vincent de Paul helpline (592-1960) was damaged by Hurricane Irma and cannot take messages at this time. This helpline is being repaired but is awaiting delivery for technical parts.
We also want to ask those who can, to please consider bringing a nonperishable food item to our food bin. Our usual food collection Sunday is the third Sunday of the month. We, like the other thirteen churches we work with, were closed that Sunday and our food pantry is in dire need of food.
Due to the disruption of Hurricane Irma, The Light of World Retreat has been rescheduled from the weekend of September 22nd through September 25th to the dates below.
None of us really “own” any of our time. It all belongs to God. So make a small return to Him with some of your time. Join us for the Light of the World Retreat. Take a step on your journey toward a deeper relationship with Jesus. Those joining you will be your fellow parishioners. The team presenting the retreat are parishioners like you. The retreat takes place right here at St. Matthew and you will go home at night to sleep in your own bed.
So why not?
|Friday, December 1st||7:00 pm - 9:00 pm|
|Saturday, December 2nd||8:00 am - 8:00 pm|
|Sunday, December 3rd||8:00 am - 8:00 pm|
|Monday, December 4th||6:30 pm - 9:30 pm|
You will spend some time in prayer, hear how others have come closer to Jesus, and renew the sacraments. Treat yourself and feed your soul. If you feel God is calling you to strengthen or deepen your relationship with Him, register for this retreat! This retreat is free to attend but a goodwill offering will be collected.
Register for the Light of the World Retreat here and scroll toward the bottom of the page. You can register online or print off a paper registration form to turn into the parish office. Please note that the on-line registration form still references the obsolete September dates but the registration form is still valid for registering for the new December 1-4 dates.
