Communion Prayer

Be content. Be content.

We are the Body of Christ.

We have found Him, He has found us.

We are in Him, He is in us.

There is nothing further to look for,

except for the deepening of this life

we already possess.

  Be content.

Welcome SS Cosmas & Damian, St. Gertrude, St. Mary! 

Exodus 22:20-26 Psalm 18    1Thessalonians 1:5-10  Matthew 22:34-40

In the exchange between Jesus and the Pharisees we just heard in today’s Gospel, we can see two ways of looking at life.
The Pharisees see life in terms of reward and punishment. Jesus sees life as a gift.
Besides the Ten

Let us remember!
The celebration of the Eucharist is the summit of our identity as the People of God.  We are transformed into the Body of Christ.  Attendance at Sunday Mass is vital to the life of the community at St. Matthews. We must encourage a “sacramental culture”! Hope to see you there…Every Sunday!

The Parish Religious Education Program is in need of some help.  Sharing the faith with our most innocent and precious is a special task that brings a fruitful reward.   Young professionals are especially encouraged to help. If you could consider assisting in this most important ministry, please contact Mary Kay McKenna or Linda DiCampli 610-828-0424.  Both are present Sunday morning in the Rectory.

Liturgy of the Word for Children takes place every Sunday at the 9am Mass.  All children are invited from the altar to the sacristy to share in a child-like presentation of the Readings of the Day.  They return after the Prayer of the Faithful.  Parents are permitted to accompany younger children.

Help is needed for Liturgy of the Word for Children during the 9:00AM Mass. If interested contact stmatthewrectory@verizon.net
