Men's Shelter May Collection
Thank you for your past donations to the Charlotte Men’s Homeless Shelter. Our next quarterly collection of underwear for residents of the Charlotte Men’s Shelter is in May. Please bring a package of new underwear, (preferably boxer shorts or briefs, white crew-neck t-shirts), flip flop shower shoes, razors, or personal-sized toiletries. Place donations in the blue collection barrels in the narthex. Your generosity helped over 2,000 men in 2018.
2019 Diocesan Support Appeal
Through the Diocesan Support Appeal (DSA), we have an opportunity to be merciful benefactors through gifts that make a difference in the lives of thousands of our sisters and brothers in faith. Our motivation can be summed up in this year’s DSA theme:  We Are His Hands.

The 2019 DSA goal for St. Matthew is $837,171. We have currently collected $391,747 from 1,569 households. If you haven’t already, please consider making a gift. Donations exceeding our goal will be used to build a Habitat for Humanity home for a local family in need.

Thank you for your generosity and for being His Hands.
