Give FIVE More. Create a Holy Moment.
Loose Offertory for August goes to Hands & Hearts with Haiti. For more information on HHH visit www.handsandheartswithhaiti.org. Watch for additional details in next week’s bulletin.
Dear Members of our Parish Family:
Due to the cancellation of our picnic, some of our friends in charitable work did not receive a donation from us this summer.
So to help them, we will be designating our monthly loose offertory, as well as any envelopes/checks that come our way designated by you for that charity.
It will go as follows:
August - Hands & Hearts with Haiti
September - St. Vincent de Paul Society
October - Feed My Starving Children
November - St. John's Homeless Shelter
December - Love Life
Obviously, you can donate to any of these charities at any time, but we wanted to designate the monthly loose offertory to one charity.
So thank you for your continued support of these charities.

SCRIP Sales Resume at St. Matthew Parish Office
The parish office will again sell scrip during business hours of Monday thru Friday 10 am to Noon. The Father Allouez Catholic School 2020/2021 scrip requirement for school families began on July 1st. Orders placed by Noon on Sunday are available for pick up on Thursday. Some scrip may not be available weekly because local is only taking bi-weekly orders. For more information email Joey or Michele at [email protected]
Poll Workers Needed
THERE IS AN URGENT NEED FOR POLL WORKERS in the city of Green Bay. If you know anyone (including yourself) who is comfortable being in public with safety precautions, and is interested in doing something to ensure citizens have the right to vote. At last count, the city was looking for 229 more poll workers! Any eligible voter in Brown County (excluding those running for office) can be a poll worker in Green Bay. It’s a paid job, and employers are required by state law to give time off to be an election official. Even if most people vote by mail, we need poll workers to process the absentee ballots. And there will always be a need for in-person voting; for example, for people who didn’t register ahead of time. Green Bay has simplified the application process to be an election inspector (poll worker) and there’s now an online form. Visit https://greenbaywi.gov/FormCenter/Clerks-41/Election-Inspector-Application. For additional information go to https://greenbaywi.gov/PollWorkers.
