Faith Formation and Sacraments
FAITH FORMATION TEACHERS NEEDED. The St. Matthew Faith Formation program for public school students in grades 1 – 10 will resume in mid-September and we have openings for teachers and helpers. Volunteers should enjoy helping children know, love, and serve Jesus and their neighbor, as they learn more about their Catholic faith. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45 pm, be- tween September and April. Curriculum and supplies are provided. If a weekly commitment is too much, please consider being a substitute or helping with specific events. To find out more, call or email Janelle Rohr, Faith Formation coordinator, 651-457-3522 or Janelle@st-matts.org.
