It’s “Answering the Call” Commitment Weekend + Saturday Happy Hour + Coffee and Donuts After Sunday Masses

Sept. 16-17 is Commitment Weekend for the Answering the Call Stewardship Program. We encourage all parishioners to spend time in prayer and discussion with your family, reflecting on the parish’s needs and your current level of giving. Parishioners are asked to return their commitment cards at Mass on Sept. 16-17.
As part of our Stewardship Commitment Weekend, our September “First Saturday” Happy Hour will move to Sept. 16. The Sept. 16 Happy Hour will be held in the community room after the 5 p.m. Mass. We will have coffee and donuts after all Sunday Masses on Sept. 17 as part of our stewardship celebration and as a thank you for your commitment to our wonderful St. Matthew Parish.

Answering the Call–Pick Up a Beautiful Bookmark This Weekend with Our Stewardship Prayer
My parish is composed of people like me. I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly, if I am. It will be holy, if I am. Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.
It will do great work, if I work. It will be prayerful, if I pray.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.
It will bring others into worship, if I invite and bring them in.
It will be a place of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, of compassion, charity, and mercy,
if I who make it what it is, am filled with these same things.
Therefore, with the help of God, I will answer the call of Christ and dedicate myself to the task
of being all things that HE WANTS my parish to be. Amen.
