Toy Mass! Sunday Dec. 6th at 11:00!
The Outreach Ministry cordially invites you to attend the annual parish Toy Mass. You and your family are invited to place a donation of a new, unwrapped toy at the altar before Mass.
The OUTREACH MINISTRY will distribute your donation to families within ST. MATTHEW SCHOOL AND PARISH who may be experiencing temporary financial difficulties. It is a great way to start the Christmas season. Your donations allow us to help many parish families.
Gift certificates for food stores can also be donated. These certificates are given to parishioners to enable them to shop for the perishable items they would like for their holiday meal during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Gift certificates can be placed in an envelope, Attention OUTREACH MINISTRY, and dropped off at the rectory. Your donations are requested by December 8TH in order to have them available to distribute for Christmas.
If you are in need of help from Outreach Ministry you can call Pat Guerin @ (215) 338-4135. All toys will be distributed by December 18th.
All Calls are Confidential.
