For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me. Mathew 25: 35-36
Sts. Mary and Matthew Faith Community is committed to serving the poor, marginalized, lonely and forgotten. We do this through various activities throughout the year. We meet the second Sunday of every month at 9:30 am at St. Matthew Church. Everyone is welcome to join us.
"In fidelity to our Catholic faith, we have the right and the responsibility to be involved in addressing public policy issues. Our freedom to elect leaders and to engage in political debate comes as a result of the great risks and sacrifices of those who have came before us.
As the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops reminds us in their document, Faithful Citizenship: In light of Catholic teaching, the bishops vigorously repeat their call for a renewed politics that focuses on moral principles, the promotion of human life and dignity, and the pursuit of the common good. (Page 26, paragraphs 61 and 62). " ~~The Most Reverend Salvatore Matano, Bishop of Rochester.
In this spirit and following the social teachings of our faith, we encourage all parishioners to be politically educated and engaged to nurture the positive political work among the faithful.
