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.

Fr. Tom Heron’s Weekly Reflection

  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.

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 for Liturgy of the Word for Children during the 9:30AM Mass. If interested contact stmatthewrectory@verizon.net
