Evangelizing through various projects focusing on the needs of the parish, local and global communities.
Our Parishes of St. Stanislaus Kostka and Transfiguration are very responsive to many needs. Our mission is not specifically geared to one set need but to any need of the present time which we, as a community, can give of our time and talent. We are all one voice; and our goal is to do good for our neighbors in Jesus’ name.
Matthew’s Mission revolves around Mathew’s Gospel; especially the vision that we can believe in the mustard seed parable and have faith so strong we will be able to accomplish great things. With our churches’ many talents and dedication to follow in Jesus’ footsteps on earth, may our vision grow stronger each day. All are welcome! Our regularly scheduled meetings are held the last Thursday of each month, beginning at 7pm in St. Stanislaus Kostka Rectory Meeting Room.
