Parish Goals


For the next five years, Saint Matthew Church is committed to pursue these goals as the top priorities for our parish mission:


1. To be visible in the community,
2. To set up text based communication
(website and email),
3. To involve more people in Youth Masses,
4. To continue efforts toward the parish hall, and 
5.  to reach out to fallen away Catholics in the county.


*************************

Our Mission Statement


We, the Christian Community of St. Matthew Roman Catholic Church, 

commit ourselves to actively embrace 

the Gospel values of faith, hope, and love,

expressing ourselves in a spirit of stewardship,

responding openly and prayerfully in service,

and reaching out to all through a 

welcoming, listening, and respectful attitude.
