World Meeting of Families (10 Themes)

Love Is Our Mission

1. Created for Joy
We are more than an accident of evolution. We are greater than the sum of our biology. God exists. He is good. He loves us. He made us in his image to share in his joy. He takes an active hand in our lives. He sends his only Son to restore our dignity and lead us home to him.
2. The Mission of Love
God works through us. We have a mission. We are in the world for a purpose – to receive God’s love and to show God’s love to others. God seeks to heal a broken universe.

Of Special Interest at St. Matthew's

   MMTHANK YOU!!!
Many thanks to the fine gentlemen of Conshohocken Fire Company No. 2 who generously gave their Saturday morning to decorate the tree in the front yard of the rectory.
This tree is the focal point of an Advent Tree Lighting Ceremony where the children of the parish lead the community for the closing of the Advent Season and the beginning of Christmas.  They do so in song, re-enacting the Scripture story of the Birth of the Baby Jesus, and the blessing of the Christmas Tree and Nativity which lights up Fayette Street for all to rejoice in this most joyful occasion.
Many thanks to Bill McAvoy, Chief Leo Costello, as well as  Dan, Matthew, Mark and John Costello, Drew Trainer, John Drozd, Mike Yuengling and Bernie Brady.  We are deeply grateful for their expertise and generosity.
Please continue to keep in your prayers the candidates, their families and sponsors of those preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation this March with Bishop Michael J. Fitzgerald.  We will confirm 65 disciples of the faith.  In March we will celebrate our heavenly Father’s favorite daily miracle, his merciful forgiving love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation with 42 children of the parish.  They will celebrate First Eucharist in April.  So much grace!  Keep these little ones and their families in your prayers as well.

CONFIRMATION: Tuesday, March 10, 2015 @ 4PM

PROJECT APPALACHIA
VOLUNTEER  OPPORTUNITY
Project Appalachian is a parish wide collection of clothing for those who are in most need in one of the poorest areas of our country.  All clothing which has been collected through the Parish and our PREP program will be sorted, packed and delivered to needy people in Kentucky.
All are invited to participate.  Our Confirmation Candidates and their parents have been commissioned to help in sorting and folding the clothes which have been collected.  But anyone who can help is encouraged to assist.
This is an excellent opportunity to serve those who are less fortunate and to live out our baptismal call, as Jesus taught.  Sister Robbie Pentecost who leads this project will be speaking at all the Masses Feb. 7 and 8th.  She will address the PREP program Feb. 9th.
Please let us know which date and time you may be able to assist in the project.  Respond to mckennamaryk@gmail.com or kpulli@athenacontrols.com. State date and available time. (Help for as long as you can.) Your help is greatly appreciated and needed!
Saturday, February 7, 2015 @ 1:30 pm SSCD Church Basement (before 4:30pm Mass at St. Matthew)
Sunday, February 8, 2015 after the 11:30pm Mass (sorting in SSCD Church Hall).

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!

Liturgy of the Word for Children takes place every Sunday at the 9:30AM 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 if interested contact stmatthewrectory@verizon.net
