Why do Catholics...

Why do Priests kiss the Altar at Mass?

It is clear that from the earliest times a kiss was not only a token of love, but also under certain circumstances a symbol of profound respect.

Contact our coordinators 
Matthew 5:14-16

You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.
 
The Communications Committee is looking for working members.  This is an active ministry that works with our web site, Facebook page and E-Newsletter.  The committee meets in the parish office conference room the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM we are usually finished by 8:30 PM.  You don't have to be a techno wiz; if you love to write and report on parish activities we welcome you.  We need you to help bring the story of St. Mathias Parish forward.  If you are interested, please call the parish office (414) 321-0893 or e-mail.

Thank you

Sister Parish Committee
In Mexico our Catholic Priests are being attacked and need our Prayers.  Please continue to keep them in your Prayers, especially our sister Parish Santa Maria de los Angeles in Arambarri, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

It would also be an excellent idea to keep the World Church in your prayers as well.
