St. Matthew Parish Community Update as of 5-29-2020
Holy Communion Service at St. Matthew
Bishop Ricken has asked churches to offer Holy Communion beginning May 30-31, the Feast of Pentecost. It is a first step towards opening our church to celebrate Mass in the future. We will continue our online Masses during this time and hope you watch the Mass before or after receiving Holy Communion.
St. Matthew Parish will be offering Holy Communion on Saturdays from 5:00 to 5:30 pm and 10 to 10:30 am on Sundays.
For safety of all people we will have instructions on how to prepare for and take part in the communion service. This includes entering and exiting the church through separate doors, wearing a face mask and practicing social distancing. You can view the instructions and prayer sheet a head of time by clicking here.
The tentative date for weekend Mass to begin again at St. Matthew is the weekend of June 13th & 14th, along with June 15th for daily Mass. We will keep you informed as the date gets closer.
We look forward to seeing you! Keep safe and healthy! Staff of St. Matthew Parish
