As we begin the summer months, just a few thoughts on the parish and our attendance at Mass each week.  As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer there may be tendency to forget going to church at all.  Whether at home or away we are required as Roman Catholics to attend Mass each week.  If you are away on vacation please try to find out where the local church is located and the parish summer mass schedule.  Secondly, if you do go away on vacation we would ask that you “make up” your weekly parish offering to St. Matthew Parish. Giving is easy while you are away this summer. Go to and click on the Online Giving link, it’s quick and easy. Your support during summer months helps sustain our parish. And finally, I would ask that although the weather is warm please remember to dress properly for Mass. Tank tops or short shorts are discouraged.  Also please remember to stay to the very end of Mass and not to leave Mass after Communion.
I hope that everyone will have a most
  enjoyable and safe summer.
