Welcome to St. Matthew

WELCOME TO ST. MATTHEW PARISH!
Happy 4th of July
Crisis times, such as this pandemic, disrupt all of our lives. Some of us are getting through these times with simple inconveniences; others of us are trying to figure out how to meet our basic needs. Now is the time to remember, you’re not alone in this.
If you need someone to talk to about your faith, or where is God at in this moment in your life, please give us a call at the parish office at 847-891-1220.
There is nothing wrong with recognizing that you need help navigating your current circumstances. If you, or your family are struggling in these challenging times, consider reaching out for counseling services. Catholic Charities helps connect individuals and families to individual, family and marriage counseling, mental health concerns, substance abuse and domestic violence and also provides resources to assist with emergency needs for housing, clothing and food assistance. They can connect you to a vast array of services and professionals who can connect you to confidential help and needed resources.
For these types of services, please reach out to Sr.Chioma Ahanju at 312-655-7149 and let her know St. Matthew has referred you.
If you’re not sure whether your needs are pastoral or professional, call us at the Parish at
847-891-1220 and we can help connect you to the appropriate resource.
Food Drive For Catholic Charities
Catholic Charities Northwest has reached out to us to ask if we can help them refill their food pantry. They are struggling to meet the needs of the families that come to them each week. If you can help, please drop off the non-perishable (and not expired) items in boxes or bags in front of the main doors of the church from 10am-2pm Mondays-Fridays. If you prefer to drop off a gift card or monetary donation, please drop that in the Rectory Mail drop box.
