Generations of Faith - Religious Education for Public School Families One of the most important things we do as parents is to help our children develop a relationship with their God. At St. Matthew we support families in that endeavor through our Generations of Faith program. Generations is open to everyone in the parish community but is especially important to our families using public education. It’s a time and place for us to support each other and together learn about our God and our Church. Special age level breakouts allow us to explore our faith in a manner that fits where we are at life, whether it be elementary, middle school, high school or adult.

As we look ahead to the start of a new school year we invite families new and old to sign up for this year’s program. Registration materials and additional information are available here. If you have questions contact Mike Westenberg at the parish office, 435-6811 or email 

Justice and Human Concerns Committee - Pope Francis has captivated the attention and imaginations of many of us with his strong words and actions connecting following Christ and how we conduct ourselves in the world. Francis draws from the long tradition of Catholic social teaching to prod us to live and think differently. Leading us by his example and teaching, he urges Catholics worldwide to better imitate Jesus in our daily lives. 

The goals of our parish Justice and Human Concerns Committee are to help promote Catholic Social Teaching and support parish members in living them out. In the past we’ve done that through: our Justice Herald newsletter, hosting issue forums and educational events, leading collections for the less fortunate, providing opportunities for people to get involved with St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter, Habitat for Humanity, Love Life, and the St. Vincent de Paul Society, along with other groups and agencies. If you would like to join us in this work we would love to have you. For more information on the committee, contact Mike Westenberg at or Jackie Thiry at
