St. Matthew School

Time of reflection

My prayers for each of you as we begin the season of Lent. May this time of year be our chance to better ourselves so that we can live the life God wants for us--serving and pleasing Him.

We remember this daily at school in all we do, it's all for Jesus!

I wanted to thank each of you who helped support Mardi Gras last week. We had a wonderful time! There were so many people who helped with the event financially and physically. Thank you for all you did to help make it a success! We are already excited for next year!

We hope you enjoy our newsletter and thanks for supporting St. Matthew!

The parish and school also collected canned food. We were able to deliver 466 pounds to the Bellevue Food Pantry. Thanks to all parishioners and school families who helped support the drive.
