Parish Community

Parishioners come together in the following councils, committees and ministries to provide for and serve the administrative and community needs of the St. Matthew Catholic Community.

Parish Community Stewardship Opportunities

Adopt-A-Garden

Fellow Garden Enthusiasts!Our opportunity to gardening in Wisconsin is limited, so take advantage of digging in the dirt as often as you can in the upcoming gardening season.  At St. Matthew we can help fulfill your gardening passion. St. Matthew grounds are divided in to 25 numbered areas; each area is adopted by one of our parishioners.  You can adopt and care for and area for one season or can continue to maintain your area year after year. Some of our gardeners have kept their same plot since our Adopt-A-Garden program began 11 years ago. Other gardens have come and gone. This year we have several areas open for Adopting. By choosing to Adopt-A-Garden, you are asked to keep the area aesthetically pleasing by weeding, watering, and fertilizing. You can choose to add annual flowers if you wish but this is not required. Most areas are planted with perennials.

Knights of Columbus

On September 13, 1991, thirty Catholic men from St. Matthew and Resurrection Catholic parishes formed the Father Claude Allouez Council, Knights of Columbus. The council’s mission was and is to continue a charitable and fraternal organization which supports widows and orphans, the needs of both parishes, and the needs of those less fortunate in the greater Green Bay community. Today 108 men from both parishes support that mission. Please consider joining a great group of men dedicated to helping those less fortunate. Visit
allouezknights.org for more information.

Volunteer Receptionist

We are in need of individuals to volunteer their time and talents by helping out in the Parish Office once or twice a month. Individuals would assist with mailings, selling Scrip, answering phones and additional office tasks.

Apostles

The Apostles meet on the last Monday of the month to get an update on projects and odd jobs around the parish/school buildings and grounds. They have done painting project, building project, lawn care, trimming trees, edging, repairs on numerous things, preventive maintenance, along with numerous renovation projects. A few meet in the gathering space for coffee and socializing 3 to 4 times a week. If you like to keep busy with hands on projects and enjoy company doing this might be right for you, please, consider joining this group. Most of the group is retired men but the group is open to all.

Cleaning Angels

Help beautify our church and serve on one of the five teams that clean and care for it each week on a rotating schedule. Usually the cleaning takes place on either Friday or Saturday morning.

Men's Club

This fraternal organization is open to Christian men age 18 and older. The Men’s Club meets the first Thursday of the month (September- May) for a business meeting followed by snacks, beverages and fun. Meeting nights can include Packer/NFL night, Texas Hold’em poker
night, Micro Brew sampling night, Oktoberfest night and the always popular “Shrimper” (all-you-can-eat shrimp). Known widely for their Annual Charity Wild Game Feed, the Men’s Club has raised over $500,000 for the parish, St. Matthew School, and other local charities. “Fun” is the operative word with the Men’s Club and summertime
allows for Bullfrog baseball and the annual Harry LaTour Golf Outing and Steak Fry.
