NOW IS THE TIME OF MERCY! 

Divine Mercy In the Second Greatest Story Ever Told is a dramatic 10-session journey featuring best-selling author and popular speaker Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC.

Fr. Gaitley weaves a tapestry of wonder and beauty from the threads of the dramatic history of Poland, the transformative message of St. Faustina Kowalska, the prophetic apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, the powerful witness of St. Maximillian Kolbe, and the world-changing papacy of Pope Saint John Paul II.

But this is more than just a masterful telling of the “Second Greatest Story.” Thanks to the brilliant artistry of the Augustine Institute’s world-class film team, this amazing story comes to life like never before. In fact, you’ll not just learn about the consoling message of Divine Mercy, you’ll experience it.

RCIA * ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE - ST. MATTHEW

MASS at 06.30 PM

Life is a journey that continually searches for meaning. The human heart hungers for relationships that nurture one’s maturity and ability to love and to be loved. Often as one seeks to fulfill these very human yearnings, the realization that something is missing from life is made. As one reflects upon this void, it is not unusual to discover that this something is God. This awakening may lead to a turning point in one’s life to commit to a relationship with God and seek out a worshipping community to guide one’s journey in faith. Many may ask the question: How can I become Catholic? If you are interested in becoming Catholic or know someone who has an interest, please contact Church Office and give your name, address and phone number. Deadline for registration is September 20, 2022. ● Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the normal way for unbaptized persons and those who have been baptized in another Christian tradition to become a Catholic. We will start our R.C.I.A. program in St. Matthew Parish with organizational meeting on September 27, 2022 at 7.00 PM.

Mass at 06.30 PM

Take a moment during your busy days to remove yourself once a month from that business of today’s life and come and spend some quality time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in St. Matthew Church. Prayer and meditation before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament are great ways to spend some special time with Jesus. You can ask Him for graces for yourself or for loved ones, reflect on His Word, or just keep Him company silently! Offer your precious time to Him - come for Adoration. Will you spend an hour with Jesus? Will you come?

Our parish invites you individually or as a family to say the rosary with the help of the internet. "Come Pray the Rosary" is a perpetual rosary that allows people to say the rosary together on the internet. You can join with others and say the rosary in progress, or start it individually by choosing the mystery you want to say. Through this website, you can follow along as the Rosary is recited, with the visual aid of video from the Holy Land. You can literally see the places where the mysteries take place! You also can keep track of how many other people, around the world, are joining you in prayer. By clicking on the number of people praying and then the map, you can actually see the location of those you are praying with on a map. Please check out this great website at http://www.comepraytherosary.org/.
