2017 Catholic Stewardship Appeal

Why do Catholics...
Is missing Sunday Mass a mortal Sin?

We should first call to mind the importance of the Mass. Each Sunday, and Holy days of obligation, we gather together as a Church with hearts filled with joy to worship Almighty God. We remember and profess our faith in the mystery of our salvation. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, suffered, died, and rose for our salvation. The saving actions of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday's Easter Vigil coalesce in the Holy Sacrifice of one Mass.

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.

Parish Profile:
St. Matthias School Principal, Mrs. Kristin Lee

In talking with Mrs. Lee about her professional life as an educator, and about her new role at St. Matthias, one word that quickly comes to mind is "energy"!    Mrs. Lee's varied background as a social worker, teacher, instructional coach, and now principal has been filled with challenges and she has used her energy to rise up to each challenge, succeed, and challenge herself to do more!

What is the Soles for Education Walk? This is a non-competitive, 2 mile walk around the Mount Mary Campus in Milwaukee.  It is a fundraiser to promote Catholic Education and Support Catholic Schools- 100% of the funds raised stay at St. Matthias for the school to use as they see fit. This can include offsetting operating costs, tuition assistance, textbooks or technology supplies.

Honoring Choices
Do you have an advanced directive {AD} or a
Power of Attorney{POA} for Health care?

The advanced directive allows you to appoint another person and alternate people to make your health care decisions if you become unable to make these decisions for yourself.

If you do not have an advanced directive please contact me and I will help you get the form you need.
