Discipleship and Donuts

As part of our new Catholic Family Life initiative, St. Matthew Parish will be hosting a new type of gathering every month called Discipleship & Donuts! All are invited!

On the first Sunday of every month, we will gather first at the 8am Catholic Family Life Mass followed by the Discipleship & Donuts meeting in Feeney Hall. We will have guest speakers, fellowship, and (of course) donuts!

Here are the dates for the next year:

2021: September 12, October 3, November 7, December 5

2022: January 2, February 6, March 6, April 3, May 1, June 5, July 3, August 7

September 12, 2021 — Family Prayer

For our first meeting, we had a talk by a parish family about the importance of family prayer, and some wonderful examples on how to pray as a family at home.  We went through worksheets with examples of family prayer, grade level prayers, and How to Have a Holy School Year which was filled out by the whole family.  We also talked about the covenant for the school year – what is expected from families, and a survey of what families would like from the parish in return.

If you missed the Mass and meeting, please fill out and return the Covenant Form and survey to the parish office.  Also please complete How to Have a Holy School Year with your family.  It does not need to be turned in, but it is important to do together so that you can make a plan on how and when to pray as a family!
