THANK YOU parish family for listening and responding to the
plea for sponsors for children in need around the world.
Because of you, at least 19 children, families and elderly,
and maybe some more, have hope for their future. Each of them is worth the
whole world, so congratulations on saving the world! St Matthews is truly
testimony to the love, compassion and charity of the Catholic faith.

Are you a good steward of our Social Media? The acronym T.H.I.N.K. invites us to consider what we are saying and sharing online, and whether it should be said?
T.H.I.N.K. stands for: True, Helpful, Inspirational, Nice, Kind.
True - Are we sharing factual Information or a rumor that was heard? Is the source Trustworthy?
Helpful - Is the information we are sharing something that can be useful to another person?
Inspirational - Are we posting to inspire others about the good in our world, or are we posting to cut someone down or to simply rant?
Nice - Have we considered others' feelings when we include them in a status or post a picture of them? Are we using it to make the world a better place or to humiliate or intimidate others?
Kind - What a great tool to compliment, show gratitude, and build the self-esteem of those we care about!
T.H.I.N.K. is a great way for us to be good stewards of our own social media use. Gospel living has to do with the positive way we approach this life and bring God's light and love to others - and it couldn't be easier than sharing an uplifting status on Facebook, a Tweet of gratitude to a friend, or a beautiful image of God's inspiring creation on Instagram. What a great way to build the Kingdom of God!
