CALLING ALL COOKS! A family has recently moved into an Ecumenical Partnership for Housing (EPH) home in our parish neighborhood. We would like to take this opportunity to provide some meals for them, a working mom and her five children. 
We hope to provide 2 freezable main dishes per week. We are looking for enough volunteers to make one entree (casserole, crock pot dinner or pot of soup) every month. If you are interested in this “5 More” opportunity, please contact Ginger Micksch at 491-9755. Thank you!

Pictures from Mortell Studio are here! Pictures from Mortell Studio are ready to be picked up at the Parish Office during normal office hours. Note: the new directory itself will be ready sometime in early 2018.

From Your SVdP St. Matthew Conference We are overwhelmed with your heartfelt generous donation of $1,443.50 in the Thanksgiving Day collection. The relief that you offer through your donations for our fellow brothers and sisters will provide comfort and peace during their challenging times. Thank you and may God continue to Bless You!

Crèche Silent Auction Results We wish to thank all those who bid on items during our special crèche silent auction which concluded on Sunday. Because of your generosity we made over $2,000 which was divided between our roof fund and our Social Concerns Outreach Endowment. The Endowment provides help for many different organizations locally, nationally, and even global needs. As the endowment states: “We value our call to care for others.” Thank you again to those who helped in any way.
