*One Heart Parish Survey- IMPORTANT! Saint Matthew Church will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute!  We need your help! Please help us by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online.  The survey can be accessed through an online link from FEBRUARY 22 TO MARCH 27 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow.  All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as a whole.The link is available above in the blue box with 'One Heart Questions' as it's title. We are trying to get the highest response rate possible.  This information will be invaluable to Fr. Straub and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be.  We will receive the results this summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.            To make special arrangements for getting a paper copy, please contact Fr. Straub at 356-6530.  Thank you for helping with this important project!   

*The Chosen-  The Chosen is a made for TV series offered on Youtube or Netflix. You can also download the "AngelStudio/streamthechosen"  on your phone. It is free and gives a wonderful depiction of when Jesus started his ministry and carries out His Father's will. It is very inspiring and well worth watching.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 *Prayer List- Jerry & Eileen Ehlman, Sherri Moffett, Charles Taylor, Chris Rauf, Katie Davis, Barry Bergman, Andrew Lauck, Bradley Franzen, Pam Babbington, Dave Kordenbrock, Kate & Colton Sherold, Karen Reilly, Emmitt Thomas, Jeff suffering from Meniere’s disease, Tony Bach, John Jackson, Hank Bond, Hudson Feinauer, Mike and Bill Lemming, Dave Neuspickel, Bonita and Jim Happe, Dave Verst, Andy Sper, Billie Huffman, Larry Slusher, Brenda Johnson, Verna Payne, Roger High,  Rita Funke, Johnathan Briggs, Cheryl Miller, Missy Fryman, Sherry Jackson,  Bernie Rawe (shoulder surgery), Sarah Gripshover, Jeane Eanes, Bill Schneider who is in Storypoint Assisted Living, 9255 US42, Apt. 44, Union, KY. 41091, and Ree Wagner.
