Holiday Blessings


Greetings. We hope the newsletter this month find you healthy and enjoying all the blessings of the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. Though we have had several significant losses this year, we are thankful for the blessings that have been bestowed upon us: a successful Pride Mass, being able to meet in person for our monthly meetings, several successful social events outside of our regular meeting times, new members and the welcoming of a new deacon to the parish. The Comunidad Board extends warm wishes to you as you enjoy the many blessings this season. God Bless

Christmas Giving


Once again, Comunidad will be collecting monetary donations to purchase food gift cards for the needy of the St Matthew community. Comunidad “Bell Ringers” will be outside the church after all masses for the weekend of Dec 4th/5th and Dec 11th/12th. Additional bell ringers are needed and welcome. Please contact ______ if you are able to help. If you are unable to give in person you can go to STMATTHEWLB.ORG and go to the general donation page and select Comunidad and in the comment section add Christmas Collection. Donations may also be brought to our meeting on December 7th. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
