Thursday Update: May 19, 2022

Dear St. Matthew’s Elementary School Families,

It was really heartening to see so many families and parishioners come out to our inaugural Volunteer Appreciation Afternoon.  It was a great community building event, one that I hope will be an annual event!

Whether you and your family are “getting away” for the long weekend or staying close to home, I pray that you enjoy a blessed time with your children and have time to rest, relax and pray!

  
Sincerely in Christ,
Miss Welsh
