News about St. Matthew’s Alerts – Many of you have reported that you have not been receiving alerts sent out by the church office or the Mid-week Messenger (MM). We have finally discovered the cause of this—additions to the alert list were not getting updated to the email access that the church office and MM use. While we develop a long-term solution, we will work to ensure you ALL receive the alerts and MM. Please continue to contact the church office with new email addresses and/or changes in your email address. If you did not receive the Mid-week Messenger this past Thursday(February 19), then we do NOT have your current email address. Thank you for your patience!
