All Saints Day & All Souls Day Masses, Nov. 1 & Nov. 2

Dear Parish Family…This week, we have two major Feast Days – two great opportunities to come to Mass and to pray. We need the help of our Saints in our daily lives. Our families, who have gone before us, are counted among the Saints. We thank God for them and we ask them for their help. We must never forget to pray for them. I also think if my prayers can’t help a soul get to heaven, then maybe someday when I need it, they will pray for me, too.”

In His Love,

Msgr. Walter


Bishop to Confirmandi: “Your Destiny is to be Great. One Choice at a Time.”

Congratulations to our fifty-one St. Matthew teenagers who received the anointing of the Holy Spirit from Bishop Frank J. Caggiano, Oct. 20 at 7PM Mass.

“Your destiny is to be great.
One choice at a time.
One decision at a time.
When you make a choice in the heart of Jesus,
you will show yourself and the world
who you were meant to be.”

St. Matthew Church is Texas-Bound with Supplies

From Msgr. Walter, Pastor: St. Matthew Church is Texas-bound, bringing Prayers, Love & Supplies for our sisters and brothers. I’ll be heading out next Tuesday to Our Lady of Guadalupe, our adopted Parish in Rosenberg, Texas. Fr. Lee Flores is the Pastor.

So let’s load up trucks this weekend, just like we did a few years ago for our friends on Long Island during Hurricane Sandy. NEEDED: Non-perishables, bottled water, soap, shampoo, razors, Clorox, paper towels, toilet paper. The trucks will be in front of our church this weekend at 216 Scribner Avenue, Norwalk, CT 06851. Come with supplies on your way to Mass.” Saturday Mass: 4pm; Sunday Masses: 7:30am, 9am, 10:30am, 12Noon, 5pm.
“May God, the Lord of mercy and compassion, protect all who are still in danger, and bring to safety those who are missing…” USCCB
