First Friday, The Blessed Sacrament will be in Exposition on the Altar
beginning at 9:45am. Adoration hours will continue throughout the day and night past midnight,
until 9:00am First Saturday morning. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament will be at 9:00 am.
Those who are attending Adoration for the first time.
It is always so wonderful to hear about the impact that this private prayer time with Jesus makes in your faith life.
As I always include: the hours of Adoration begin after 9:00 am Mass and continue throughout the day and past midnight, closing with Benediction at 9:00 am Saturday.
We would really love to have more people join us at 9:00 am Benediction to Pray for Vocations and for our Catholic Church. Please come.
The Mission Statement for St Matthew Parish: is as follows:
“The Catholic community of Saint Matthew Parish, in the Diocese of El Paso, is called to celebrate the presence of Christ in Word and Sacrament. We are summoned and sent by Christ to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in the spirit of faith, education, love, and service to our community in an effort to bring our members closer together and closer to God. This will be accomplished through: Teaching the tradition of the church and the word of God through worship and prayer. Establishing the spirit of belonging and welcoming visitors and new parishioners. Providing spiritual growth opportunities to all. Empowering and enriching the lives of our youth through ministry and education. Encouraging parishioners to share their time, talent, and value. Providing a safe atmosphere for all visitors and members.”
