Looking for Holy Week Sponsors
Holy Week is the most important week in the liturgical calendar. The services, Masses, and events this week are made beautiful and memorable from parishioners who each year make special donations to help St. Matthias underwrite additional expenses during this week. The following are the areas that need sponsors:
Flowers and Plants: $600
Holy Thursday Dinner: $800
If you would like to be a Holy Week sponsor, you may submit your donation through givecentral.com, or there are special envelopes at the back of church and in the pews.
Please make Reservations for Holy Thursday
APRIL 5, MASS AT 7PM, DINNER, AND ADORATION
