A Thank You & An Update from the Mission Team
A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated Stop and Shop gift cards for turkeys for the clients of St. Luke's/St. Paul's and St. John's food pantries in Bridgeport. Diane Johnson, Deacon serving St. John's Bridgeport, was overwhelmed and thrilled with our parish's response to their need. Because of the generosity of the people at St. Matt's, 52 families will have a turkey for their Thanksgiving dinners!!
Their food pantries have seen a significant increase in need since the beginning of the pandemic, so our help was needed more than ever. We are so grateful for the willingness of the St. Matt's family to give so generously to our fellow brothers and sisters in need. Even during such an incredibly trying time as this for all of us, we continue to show up for each other in amazing ways. Thank you, thank you!
Our Holiday Giving Tree will be coming up shortly, so be on the lookout for information on that coming in the next couple of weeks!
