Our liturgical experience is enhanced by St. Matthew Youth and Adult Readers, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion & Ushers who serve in Mass Ministry. Many thanks for your service to our Parish Family! Please serve at only one Mass per weekend. Do not serve at another mass, even if it’s a different ministry. This gives me the opportunity to draw from the congregation. Many thanks for your continued service to the parish. If you have any questions or concerns about your ministry, please do not hesitate to discuss with me. If you cannot make your assigned time, it will be your responsibility to get a replacement. Adult and Youth Contact Lists are emailed to all ministers and posted in the Sacristy. Printed copies of the Ministry Schedule are available in the Parish Office and the Sacristy.
