Of Special Interest at St. Matthew's
MMParish Religious Education Program 2014-2015
It is with much joy that Linda and I will combine our Religious Education programs into one. This past year with Divine Mercy Sunday being celebrated on the street the day after all the children of Conshohocken received our Risen Lord for the first time in First Eucharist, we combined our programs to honor those very children. It was a beautiful sight to behold. We look forward to many more special events and sacramental celebrations shared.
We invite all to register or re-register online and either mail the fee or drop it off at the rectory. We plan to begin in September and end with First Holy Communion April 25, 2015. We will celebrate First Reconciliation in March, First Eucharist in April and are waiting for the Bishop to make contact for Confirmation. As soon as we know, you will know. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we move through the unification. The most important thing is that we remember that we live, breath and move under a loving Father, who communicates that love through his Son, Jesus and strengthens us with the Holy Spirit. It’s why we make the sign of the cross at the beginning of everything.
(To register online go to St. Matthew website and on the right click on Religious Education Registration Form. The fee is for materials and textbooks. Please register soon so we can get a count of needed space and materials.)

This fee covers all materials, including textbooks for each class. (The staff are all volunteers who willingly share the faith with our children.)
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!
CHILDREN’S LITURGY WILL BE SUSPENDED DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.
