Happy St Matthew's Day
Today, for our titular feast, we had a Mass in the church garden in Comanche, followed by a potluck supper. Thank you so much to all who came and who brought something to eat and who stayed to clean up. What a wonderful group of people!
We thank thee, heavenly Father, for the witness of thine apostle and evangelist Matthew to the Gospel of thy Son our Savior; and we pray that, after his example, we may with ready wills and hearts obey the calling of our Lord to follow him; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
