On Sunday, March 24th, Bishop Shannon will be with us for her annual visit. This is the time when we welcome, encourage, and pray with all who desire to deepen their faith commitment and receive the prayers of the church. Those who have not received the sacrament of Baptism or Confirmation are encouraged to partake. If you are worshipping with us from another faith tradition you may feel ready to be received formally in the church. This is a renewal of faith and not a denial of our former tradition. We also offer the opportunity for others to renew their faith commitment. This is sometimes chosen by the individual after a person faith experience and the individual is asking for prayer from the assembly. Please speak with Fr. Jim if you wish to explore participation in the sacraments and prayers of the church. Come let us celebrate together! Fr. Jim cell 504-491-8686 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

This Wednesday evening Eucharist has become a high point in our St. Matthew’s Ministries. This mass begins with a simple Scripture and brief reflection. We then gather around the altar to offer the prayers of the people and to celebrate the Eucharist. The service is concluded with the anointing of the sick for those who desire the sacrament. This brief service has many regular participants and often many newcomers.
