BRING THE CHILDREN TO ME . . .
Matthew 19:14

What is a Saint?
 
To proclaim a saint by the Church has a lot of special requirements. To be a saint in God’s eyes, which is more important anyway is a lot easier. As long as you believe in Jesus and are trying to live a life that is pleasing to God and loving toward others, God says you qualify as a saint, that is, you belong to the Communion of Saints.
You are probably a saint right now. I hope you will remain among the Communion of Saints forever!
 
St. Matthew
Born in Palestine sometime in the 1st century, St. Matthew was one of Jesus's 12 apostles and also one of the four Evangelists, according to the Bible. Matthew authored the first Gospel of the Bible's New Testament, now known as the Gospel of Matthew. Prior to preaching the word of God, he worked as a tax collector in Capernaum. Matthew is the patron saint of tax collectors and accountants. The Feast of St. Matthew is annually celebrated on September 21.

Dates to Remember
 
Advent begins December 3rd: The Sunday School Department will be handing out from 11/26-12/3 a Countdown to Christmas Advent Chain. This is a great way to count the days until Jesus arrives at Christmas! Each day of Advent, this traditional chain grows longer providing families with a wonderful seasonal decoration. Each link includes a prayerful poem about the biblical characters who journeyed to the Bethlehem manger to see Jesus. Cutting is required.
