Scripture Reflection – 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Last Sunday, a trick question was posed to Jesus–is it right to give to Caesar?  Jesus used that question to teach us something vitally important about the spiritual life.  In today’s Gospel, he does the same.  What is the greatest commandment in the Law?  There were, after all, a lot of laws in ancient times, 613 of them.  If you were living at the time of Jesus, you might wonder how you keep them all straight or keep them at all.

Masses of Remembrance

The St. Matthias Community along with The Family Support Group Invite parishioners to submit the names of friends and relatives who have passed from this life into the next since Nov 1, 2019.

Loved ones will be honored at our annual Masses in Remembrance. Masses will be offered October 31st at 5:00 p.m. and November 1st at 9:30 a.m. Both Masses will be celebrated inside the Church. 

We remember those who have left this life and recognize that they are now in the Communion of Saints.

Please choose the Mass most convenient for you and your family and let us know if you will be attending.

We are also preparing a video remembrance to be shown at the masses.  To include your loved one, please email or send a photo and the dates of their birth and death to Lisa Bamford in our Office before October 20th.
