*St. Vincent de Paul Collection- The St. Vincent de Paul chapter from St. Cecilia has informed us that they need personnal care items such as shampoo, conditioners, deodorant, tooth paste and toothbrushes, bar soap, shower gel, lotion, etc. A bin is at St. Matthew to be used for this collection.
*Bible Studies- Matthew Wiseman will continue with the Monday evening Bible study. It begins at 6:30 PM on Mondays. Matthew is an Old Testament and Theology teacher so we are in for a treat!

*Lady's Tea-On Sunday, June 4, St. Matthew will host a lady's tea at 10:30 AM. All ladys of the parish are invited to visit with each other and get to know each other better. If you wish, you may bring cookies or something else that may go with a tea party.
*Cross the Bridge for Life- The annual Cross the Bridge for Life will be held at 1pm behind Newport on the Levee on the river bank. There will be music, booths, and tshirts. The actual walk will begin at 2pm. We will walk across the Purple People Bridge and back to the starting point. This is held to remind people of the sanctity of life, both young and old.
*Baby Bottle Campaign- The baby bottles for Care Net will be out this week. Please take one or two home and fill them with change, cash, or a check. This program is a big source of income for Care Net. Thank you.
*Collection for fire victims- For the next two weeks we will have a collection basket out for the benefit of Jerry and Kimberly Hicks, whose house burned a week ago. They lived about two miles from St. Matthew on Kenton Station. The house and a pick up truck were a total loss. They have a teenage son and are staying with friends. Please donate if you are able so they can get back on their feet. Thank you.
