Faith Formation Update: We do NOT have Faith Formation class on Wednesday, January 31. Regular weekly classes resume February 7 at 6:30 PM with drop-off in church and pick-up from the Parish Center at 7:45. Also, please mark your calendars for February 14, our Ash Wednesday service. Parents/guardians and parishioners are welcome and invited to join our Faith Formation students for the service which begins at 7 PM. On February 14, students should arrive at 6:30 PM and report to their classrooms in the Parish Center.
Sacrament Requirements: For parents/guardians of children in grades 2 and up who have registered for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion, and for students in grades 8 and up who have registered for Confirmation, please be sure to get your child’s certificate of baptism and turn it in to Faith Formation coordinator Janelle Rohr. If your child was baptized at St. Matthew, contact parish secretary Linda Rivera, or 651-224-9793 Monday-Friday between 9 and 1. If your child was baptized at another church, call that church office and request proof of baptism. Please submit baptism certificates to Janelle no later than February 14, Ash Wednesday. Questions? or see her on Wednesday evenings at St. Matthew between 6:45 and 7:30. This requirement applies to both our Faith Formation families and to Community of Saints families with children seeking the sacraments this spring.
