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).

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. Thank you for your patience!
