In the Gospels, we hear about how Jesus’ love for us never runs out. He is always walking beside us so we can have a refreshing and exciting life. A women met Jesus at a well and Jesus introduced himself. He let her know she could know Him and His love. In opening our hearts to this season of Lent, may we reflect on Christ’s healing presence to assist us in times of doubt.

Cardinal Seán calls on us to support the annual Catholic Appeal. Many of you have already made a pledge—THANK YOU! We are very blessed at St. Matthew the Evangelist Parish with the support of our parishioners and the many volunteers who serve in numerous ministries. We show our love and thanks to God by sharing our gifts. Every gift is important, not so much for how much it is, but because of what we become through the act of giving it.

This is our Church, and every gift makes a difference. Please consider making your gift today by visiting or by scanning the QR code above. Your gift has an immediate impact on our parish and the work of our Church. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

This weekend, we launch our annual Catholic Appeal, along with all the other parishes throughout the Archdiocese. Each year, the Catholic Appeal provides the faithful with a way to help support the ministries that support our parishes, our schools, and our communities. Some examples include – updated information and comprehensive guidance from a Pandemic Response team. They were able to recommend supplies and resources for cleaning to ensure a safe space. Also, our Central Ministries provided tools and resources to reach out to parishioners through virtual evangelization so that our ministries could continue and even thrive in this new environment. This is our Church, and every gift makes a difference. 

Please consider making an early gift to the 2021 Catholic Appeal to help ensure these ministries can continue to assist St. Matthew the Evangelist Parish. You can offer your support by going online to to make your gift at any time or scan the QR code below.
