Ministries at St. Matthew
Have you been looking for a way to get more involved in our St. Matthew parish community? Are you hearing the call of God to serve others with your time, talents or treasures? Please consider ministry service at St. Matthew. You will find many different ways to answer the call.
You may be thinking that you don't have enough time to get involved. Our time is a gift from God. Some volunteers are blessed to be retired and have more free time than others but many of us have children, full time jobs and even travel for work but somehow we still make time to show our love for God. Many ministries at St. Matthew do not require an abundant amount of time, others ask for more. You will find that there is something for all schedules.
You may be feeling that you just don't know your faith well enough to offer anything meaningful. Besides attending Mass and reading the Bible, one of the best ways to learn your faith is to get involved with your parish. We can all learn from one another. Getting involved with your parish will bring you closer to God.
You may not be ready to make a commitment. When you inquire about a particular ministry you are not necessarily making a commitment, just indicating your interest. For more information you may contact any of the ministry leaders listed here on our Web site, or make a call to the Parish office at (860) 872-0200.
Giving your time to God shouldn't be a burden. It should bring you closer to Him.
"Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received."
- 1 Peter 4:10 (NRSV Catholic Edition)
