St. Matthias School will be offering summer classes again to help continue to build skills in math, reading, and writing for our students entering grades 1-8, who would benefit from additional instruction and reinforcement.

Pentecost: Lessons in Being a Hero
WHAT DOES IT TAKE for a coward to become courageous? More to the point, what would it take for you, or me, to become a disciple? The Holy Spirit is both gift and choice. The Spirit didn’t fall on unsuspecting passersby in Jerusalem that day, nor in our own time. Imitating the fruits of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and that all-important self-control—places your lives in conformity with the Spirit you seek. It seems the hero of an hour has been preparing to be a hero his or her whole life.
