"Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul."

—St. Teresa of Avila

Pie Sales

The Daughters of Isabella will sponsor their Pie/Bake sale the weekend of April 20/21st. The priority of bake sale proceeds is to defray the cost of funeral lunches. Because of our generous parishioners, sales have exceeded expected costs this year, so we will donate these extra monies to local charitable organizations. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Veterans Food Pantry. The pantry is a multifaceted operation designed to accommodate each Veteran’s unique needs. Services include advocacy, food, shelter, outreach, and referrals for VA medical/mental health care.

Daughters of Isabella

Ladies, if you seek fellowship with Catholic women devoted to Unity, Friendship, Charity, and most importantly, Prayer, we may be the group for you! The Daughters of Isabella will meet on the 4th Monday at 6:00 pm. Meetings will be held in the Rectory Basement. This change is being made to recognize that driving in the evening during the winter months can pose difficulties for members traveling a distance to attend meetings. We invite all interested women of the parish to join us for one of these meetings to Learn about our organization and its many spiritual and charitable activities.

Community Kitchen - Feeding the Flathead

St. Matthew’s hosts Community Kitchen - Feeding the Flathead dinners every 2nd Saturday of each month. Our next meal is Saturday, April 13th at the Central Christian Church located at 248 2nd Ave East, Kalispell.

40 Days for Life

Our local 40 Days for Life Spring Campaign is here. You can protect mothers and children by joining us to pray and fast for an end to abortion, reach out to family and friends to clear up any misconceptions they may have about abortion, and take part in our peaceful prayer vigil!
