Family Connections Ministry seeks to connect and engage the families of our parish to build community through spiritual, social and service opportunities.  Whether you are parents of toddlers, preschoolers, elementary aged children, middle schoolers or high schoolers … there is something here for you!

We invite you to reach out to help us in planning, preparing and enjoying the family events!

Heart in Hand Rummy

Waxhaw Campus

November 7th


Attention Waxhaw/Union County Families!!!

Join us for a uniquely designed family event where you will explore, play, learn, serve and worship. Hike, bike or scooter around the Waxhaw Campus, search for liturgical clues, & gather your family’s rummy card hand for your chance to win prizes. Our event will conclude with the greatest prize of all, Jesus in the Eucharist. 

To enter the event we ask that each family bring a 24 pack of individually wrapped snacks to fill the holiday gift baskets St. Matthew gives the Waxhaw Police and Fire Departments.

Please RSVP to this event HERE as space is limited.
