INTERNATIONAL TABLE - THIS SATURDAY

This Saturday evening, July 29th, St. Matthew Parish will be holding its 2nd Annual INTERNATIONAL TABLE Dinner. Serving will begin at 6:15pm, and the event will be held in the parking lot just north of the church. 

A couple of years ago, when in the process of planning for the annual Fall Festival Celebration, the organizers were discussing what it is that makes St. Matthew Parish unique. The answer that surfaced was that our parish is very culturally and ethnically diverse. In a effort to celebrate that diversity, it was decided to hold a dinner that would feature foods from around the world. This dinner would be called the International Table. It was held for the first time in October 2016 in conjunction with the Fall Festival Celebration. It was a big success and everyone really seemed to enjoy this unique event. We could easily see it grow into something much bigger, so it was decided to separate it from the Fall Festival Celebration and have it as a stand-alone event. 

And has it ever grown! Whereas last year we had a total of four food booths or tables, this time we have over thirty parish cooks who will be sharing a wide variety of dishes representing a number of cultures. Italian, Mexican, Gauamanian, German, American, and more!

Tickets for the event will be sold at the gate. They are $2 each or $10 for a book of 5. With each ticket you can get to sample a dish of your choice. Who knows...with five tickets you may want to go to one booth an get an enchilada and then go to another booth for krautstrudel followed by lasagna from another table  and chicken and rice from yet another, and then finish up with homemade ice cream and fresh peach cobbler. With over 30 items to choose from, the possibilities are practically endless. Beer and Wine (including Blind Tiger beer) will also be available. 

So make plans now to join us for this fun and appetizing event. You won't be disappointed.

St. Matthew Launches a NEW Online Directory & Mobile App

Every year for the past 20+ years, St. Matthew Parish has published a Parish Directory containing the names, addresses and phone numbers of all its members. This has been a great tool for people to use to contact one another. But times have changed and the printed directory doesn't always meet the needs of our parishioners.

We are pleased to announce that St. Matthew Parish has launched a new Online Directory and Mobile App. This is a new service provided by Guidebook Publishing, the company that has printed and published our paper directory for many years. We are not doing away with the printed edition (in fact our parishioners should be receiving their 2017 Guidebook and Directory in the mail very soon), but rather adding to what we already provide. We are basically taking the information that we already publish and making it available in another format.

With the new Online Directory and Mobile App, you as a parishioner will have much more control over what is shared and be able to communicate with the Parish Office and your fellow parishioners much easier. Here are a couple of examples.

Say for instance, you move and your address has changed. You can go into the online directory and make that change yourself. That information will automatically be forwarded to the Parish Office so that your records can be updated. The same holds true with any of your family or individual information. AND you can upload family and individual photos, which is a great way for people to recognize and get to know one another.

Another great thing you can do in the new online directory is search for other people who are say for instance, in a particular ministry or part of a particular organization. Let's say you are an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, and you happen to find out that you will not be available on a particular date when you are scheduled to serve. You can pull up a directory of all the other people in that ministry, making it easy for you to find their phone numbers and call around to find someone to take your place. OR, to make it even easier, you can send them an email, either individually or as a group, and let them know that you need a substitute. That will make the process of finding substitutes so much easier.

For your peace of mind, the directory is password protected and only available to members of our congregation. Those members of our parish for whom we have email addresses on file have received an email which contains their username and password, as well as instructions on how to log in and get started. Once you are logged on, you can change your password if you wish as well as make changes and correction to your family/family member profile. If we do not have your email address, you can get started by clicking HERE or follow the link found in the Quick Links section of this webpage (see right hand side of page)

Once you have your username and password, you can search "Guide Book Publishing" at your app store and download it for free. Then all the directory information will literally be "at your fingertips."

We hope you will take advantage of this new service, and if you have any questions, contact Bob Broxterman, St. Matthew Parish Administrator, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
