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.

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!
