Father Jack & Father Canice
In the recent Year of Mercy, the Archdiocese of Washington forgave significant debt, which was owed by Saint Matthias Parish and School. This school year, the Archdiocese has awarded more than $100,000.00 in tuition assistance to our school families, as well as providing professional development for teachers and offering guidance in marketing and fundraising.
In order to partner fully in meeting the needs of our students, I will offer to the school an additional $300.00 of personal support, in addition to my regular offertory. I challenge 99 other parish and school households to join me in this one-time fundraising effort.
Our teachers and staff dedicate themselves to educating our children academically and spiritually. Please join me in supporting this important mission.
In gratitude, Fr. Jack
