At Saint Matthew’s Parish we encourage all our members to serve in ministry. The Church is the Body of Christ in this world, and each one of us are members of it (1 Cor 2:27). As members of this Body, we truly are His hands, His feet and His eyes in our world. To be a Christian, then, is to be committed to action, to living out our faith through service to one another: Jesus said, "The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve." (Mark 10:45). We are Christians, we are the Church, we are the Body of Christ, not to be served but to serve and every member of our parish as something to offer towards the Mission of the Church.
Saint Matthew Serve is how we connect people with various ministries. Please see below for more information and to connect!
Love to smile? Outgoing? Enjoy hosting guests? In hospitality we want to create a warm and friendly atmosphere by serving people, greeting people and answering basic inquiries.
Food & Social
Building community means food. If you enjoy cooking, serving or creating opportunities for people to connect then this would be your place to get involved.
Lots happens behind the scenes to create beautiful services. This is a good mix between behind-the-scene roles through set up and organizing, or assisting during Mass.
Desire to serve those in need in the community? Outreach ministries prepare meals, collect donations, help immigrants, offer drives to appointments and assist those less fortunate.
Facilities &Administrative Support
Speaking of things that happen “on the background”... This ministry is all about administrative projects (requiring varying degrees of skill), or building setup, teardown and maintenance. If you enjoy hands-on tasks, computer work or helping to organize then this is the place for you.
Central to serving here are uplifting voices. If you can sing we would love to talk to you.
Do you have a heart for the next generation? We want to ignite young people and teenagers and help them start the discipleship journey on the right foot. Faith-filled adults and teenagers who are a few steps ahead on the journey are needed to help us fulfil this dream.
Children & Youth
Those are brief overviews of the categories. Please take some time to discern where God may be calling you to use your gifts to build up his kingdom. We ask you to choose a maximum of 4 areas of interest. Someone from the ministry (or ministries) you select will then be in touch with you.
