At the 12:10 pm Mass we celebrated our 30 years and honored the Sisters of Mercy for the incredible and tireless work they have done in our parish, throughout the diocese and around the world. After the Mass, the banquet room was dedicated in memory of Sr. Jeanne Marie Kienast, a Sister of Mercy who was our first pastoral associate at St. Matthew. She served here for many years, until her death in 2015.
