The Feast of St. Matthew

September 21st


On September 21st, we celebrate the Feast of St. Matthew. An apostle and evangelist, Matthew is identified with Levi, a tax collector mentioned by Mark and Luke. In the Gospel according to Matthew, it is said that Matthew was seated in the custom-house when Jesus bade him, “Follow me.”

Tax collectors were viewed as extortionists who took money from their own people to further the cause of Rome and to line their own pockets. They were spurned as traitors and outcasts – not the sort of person that a devout Jew would have had among his closest associates. Yet Jesus noted that it was the publican rather than the proud Pharisee who prayed the acceptable prayer, “Lord, be merciful to me, a sinner.”


We thank you, heavenly Father, for the witness of your apostle and evangelist Matthew to the Gospel of your Son our Savior; and we pray that, after his example, we may with ready wills and hearts obey the calling of our Lord to follow him; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


Thank You


Thanks to all who contributed to our new refrigerator/freezer! St. George's Episcopal Church Women contributed $2,500 and individual contributions enabled us to purchase our new unit.


We are each stewards of a portion of God’s creation and your financial support provides for God’s work in the world.

Outreach: Serving the Community



Kwanzaa Kitchen: Janis has been able to come up with a unique way in which we will continue to feed the hungry in this important ministry. It involves fewer than 6 people and we will pack the food to go and place it outside on tables for people to take their breakfast with them. We will continue this way until we are able to gather groups together again.
