St. Matthias Mission Statement

St. Matthias Catholic Parish is committed to continuing the ministry of Jesus Christ. We invite and welcome all. Come… live, grow, and be challenged by the message through prayer, formation, and service.

Sponsor Assignments

Going to Mass – Experience the Universal Church
You and your sponsor must attend 2 Masses together. One at St. Matthias and the other at the
parish of your sponsor. If your sponsor also belongs to St. Matthias choose another parish in your
neighborhood. If your sponsor lives out of state or far enough away where this becomes difficult,
talk to your sponsor about a specific weekend where both of you will be at Mass. Then talk about
the experiences afterwards. After attending the Masses, you will answersome reflection questions
online. This needs to be completed before the last session Sunday April 16th, 2023.

Service Experience
You and your sponsor must engage in a service activity together for a minimum of 2 hours,
which both the candidate and sponsor choose together, but the candidate takes the initiative
to set up the project. If your sponsor is out of state or far enough away where this becomes
difficult, talk with your sponsor about a specific activity you counted towards your service
experiences. After you completed your service experience you will complete an online
reflection. This needs to be completed in before the last session Sunday April 16th, 2023.

Interview People of Faith
The best way to understand what it means to be Catholic is to talk with people who live their
Catholic faith. Throughout the year you will need to interview 2 people (1 being your sponsor and
the other a random person) of why they are Catholic and why their faith is important to them. After
interviewing them you will answer some reflection questions online. If your sponsor lives far away,
please find a time to meet over the phone or virtually to talk. This needs to be completed in before
the last session Sunday April 16th, 2023.

Admission Policy

St. Matthias, in its mission to bring everyone closer to Christ, takes its mission seriously by welcoming anyone to be a part of the St. Matthias Christian Formation Program. You do not have to be a parish member to join. That being said, the mission of St. Matthias is also strongly rooted in the community. Families that are part of our program are encouraged to be actively involved here at St. Matthias through Mass on weekends and service opportunities around the year.
