This Week

English Spanish

My dear St . Matthew Family,

On September 25th, we celebrate our patron feast, St Matthew the Evangelist.

Last year on the same day, we opened our Jubilee year celebrating our 60th year since the establishment of the parish. This year has been filled with many graces, and as the slogan for the 60th anniversary stated: we 'honor the past as we build our future.' In keeping with that moto, we had our gala at the Spanish Monastery in North Miami Beach. It was a huge success and it was a beautiful evening filled with friends, family, ideas and past pastors. At that evening, we unveiled the architectural rendition of our plans to extend the front of the church to better accommodate driving under a covered roof for ease of drop off and pick up during rainy days.

As we come to our feast day, I would like to close this jubilee year with a great celebration. I have invited Archbishop Wenski to celebrate the mass and also, I have asked him to consecrate the altar as the mensa was added some months ago to bring the altar to the appropriate height. This is a great opportunity to celebrate the past that we have inherited and build on the future that is still before us.

I want to take this opportunity to invite you to the feast day mass which will be celebrated on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 7:00pm.

Everyone is welcome! In preparing with that celebration, I have also placed, in the back of the church the backdrop of our 60th anniversary. Please take advantage and use the backdrop to take selfies and/or photographs with family and friends. It will be a great way to remember this great moment in our parish history as we celebrate 60 years of blessings, stories, and history.

After the celebration on September 25th, you are all invited to a reception outside in the courtyard to share and to celebrate as a parish family.

I am greatly honored to be a part of this parish's history and to be able to share it along all of you.

God Bless you all,
Fr. Robert

Mi querida familia de San Mateo,

El 25 de Septiembre, es nuestra fiesta patronal: San Mateo Evangelista.

El año pasado en esa misma fecha, abrimos nuestro año jubilar celebrando los 60 años de el establecimiento de la parroquia. Este año ha sido un año lleno de muchas bendiciones, y como el lema del aniversario dice: “honrando el pasado y edificando nuestro futuro.’ En seguimiento con ese lema tuvimos nuestra gala, que se llevo a cabo en enero y que lo tuvimos en el Monasterio Español en North Miami Beach. Fue una noche llena de amistades, familias, ideas, y párrocos anteriores. En dicha gala, también se desveló el arte arquitectónico del proyecto de extender el frente de la iglesia para acomodar que los carros puedan llegar a dejar a los pasajeros bajo cubierta de la lluvia.

Al llegar nuevamente a esa fecha, quisiera cerrar el año jubilar con una gran celebración. E invitado al arzobispo Wenski al celebrar la misa y también para que consagre la mensa nueva que se instalo sobre el altar para levantar el altar a una altura adecuada. Esta seria una gran oportunidad para celebrar nuestro pasado que hemos heredado, y al mismo tiempo edificar sobre el futuro que se nos esta presentando.

Es por eso que quiero invitarle a la celebración de nuestra fiesta patronal, el Miércoles 25 de septiembre a las 7:00pm.

¡Todos son invitados! En preparación para dicha fiesta, he puesto el trasfondo marcando este evento histórico de nuestra parroquia. Úsenlas para tomarse fotografías y selfies con sus familias y amistades. Fuera una forma bonita de recordad este tiempo en la historia de nuestra parroquia celebrando 60 años de bendiciones, recuentos e historia.

Después de la misa el 25 de Septiembre habrá una recepción en los jardines de la parroquia.

Estoy honrado en ser parte de la historia de esta parroquia y de poderla compartir con todos ustedes.

Dios me los bendiga,
P. Roberto
