Here at St. Matthew we have many opportunities for individuals and families to become involved within the parish and community. We've organized them into the following categories below. Details of each can be found in our Stewardship Directory, using the drop down menus on the navigation pane above or by clicking on the links.
Volunteer Receptionist We are in need of individuals to volunteer their time and talents by helping out in the Parish Office. 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, 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.
Parish Picnic Volunteers Our annual parish picnic is held the first Sunday in June. Having a successful picnic means having enthusiastic volunteers. Individuals are needed to set-up, take-down, sell food and beverages, supervise games, and much more!
Hospitality Set up and serve refreshments in the gathering space following all Liturgies on the weekend and for special parish events.
OAKS (Older Adults Klub of St. Matthew) A program for senior members of the parish meeting once a month for social gatherings, spiritual and educational enrichment, and one day bus trips.
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.
