Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint
Matthew Parish,
Thanks again to all who made my Installation Mass
and reception such a joyful celebration of our parish
life in all its diversity and richness. God has given
us many blessings, which is always the inspiration
for our life of worship and Christian service.
In that spirit of thanksgiving and mutual care, I ask you to
consider how you will support Saint Matthew’s Church and its
ministries in the Annual Archdiocesan Appeal 2015. This year’s
assessment for Saint Matthew Church is $122,900.00.
Here are just a few things that your support of the AAA has
provided in direct service to our parish over the last few years:
♦ Centralized business services in support of the parish
administration,
♦ Pastoral services unavailable at the parish level that directly
assist individuals in need or provide ongoing training and
resources for our priests, teachers and lay ministers,
♦ Education, housing and care of those preparing for the
priesthood, like our own recently ordained Father Armando
Gutierrez and Father Tony Vallecillo

Dear Parishioners and Friends of
Saint Matthew Parish,
♦
(cont’d)
Sacramental ministries that are not provided by
parish priests, like Confirmations, Ordinations, the
preparation and blessing of the Sacred Oils used
for the Sacraments throughout the year.
While these are only a few of the things your AAA
dollars have supported, they in themselves would cost
Saint Matthew’s Parish far more than $122,900.00, if
we had to provide them for ourselves. Please help us
do our part in covering the cost of services that are
essential for a Catholic parish anywhere and for a
non-profit organization here in California specifically.
I realize that your generous gifts are a spiritual
offering to God, but I am asking for a personal favor
to me as your new pastor during these first months in
my ministry here. Please join me in making a
commitment to the AAA 2015, so that we can focus on
the positive work we can do together, without letting
this become a problem to distract us.
Registered parishioners should be receiving individual
letters and AAA2015 brochures in the mail this week.
For those who are not registered, but enjoy all the
benefits of a parishioner, please be sure to pick up a
brochure in the vestibule of the Church and respond
right away.
It has been said that “No one is so poor that he
has nothing to give, and no one is so rich that
he has nothing to receive.” We need each
other in order to do this, and if we all do our
part, however small, we will make our AAA
2015 goal.
Msgr. John Talesfore, Pastor
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Queridos Parroquianos y Amigos de la
Parroquia de St. Matthew,
Nuevamente gracias a todos los que hicieron posible que la
Misa de mi Instalación, y la recepción fueran una celebración
llena de gozo de nuestra vida parroquial en toda su diversidad y riqueza. Dios nos ha dado muchas bendiciones, que
es siempre la inspiración de nuestra vida de adoración y servicio Cristiano.
En ese espíritu de acción de gracias y cuidado mutuo, les pido
que consideren como pueden apoyar a la Iglesia de St.
Matthew y sus ministerios en la Campaña Anual Arquidiocesana
del 2015. La asignación para la Iglesia de St. Matthew este
año es de $122,900.00.
Estas son solo algunas cosas que con su apoyo a la AAA
(Apelación Anual Arquidiocesana) ha proporcionado directamente al servicio de nuestra parroquia en los últimos años:
♦ Servicios empresariales centralizados de apoyo a la administración de la parroquia
♦ Servicios Pastorales no disponibles a nivel parroquial que
directamente se proveen a las personas en necesidad de
capacitación y recursos para nuestros sacerdotes, maestros
y ministerios laicos.
♦ Educación, vivienda, y cuidado para los que se preparan
para el sacerdocio (seminaristas) como nuestros sacerdotes
ordenados más recientemente Padre Armando Gutierrez y
Padre Tony Vallecillo.
♦ Ministerios sacramentales que no son proporcionados por
los sacerdotes de la parroquia, como Confirmaciones, Ordenaciones, preparación y bendición de los Santos Oleos
utilizados para los sacramentos durante todo el año.
Si bien, estos son solo algunos servicios que son patrocinados
por su donación a la AAA que por si misma le costarían a la
Parroquia de St. Matthew mucho mas de $122,900.00, si esta
tuviera que costearlos por ella misma.
Por favor ayúdenos a hacer nuestra parte para cubrir los costos
de los servicios que son esenciales para una parroquia Católica
en cualquier lugar y para una organización sin fines de lucro
específicamente en California.
Se que su generosa donación es una ofrenda spiritual a Dios,
hoy quiero pedirles un favor personal como su nuevo pastor
durante estos primeros meses en mi ministerio aquí.
“Por favor únanse a mi para hacer un compromiso con la AAA
del 2015, de modo que podamos centrarnos en el trabajo positivo y juntos podamos trabajar, sin que esto se convierta en un
problema que nos distraiga.”
Los feligreses registrados, recibirán una carta por correo esta
semana con un folleto sobre la AAA 2015. Los que no estén
registrados pero disfrutan de todos los beneficios, por favor
asegúrese de llevarse un folleto, estos se encuentran en cualquiera de los vestíbulos de la Iglesia y responda lo antes posible.
Como dice el dicho “Nadie es tan pobre que no tenga nada que
dar, así como nadie es tan rico que no tenga nada que recibir.”
Nos necesitamos unos a otros a fin de lograr nuestra asignación , y si todos ponemos nuestra parte, por pequeña que esta
sea, lograremos nuestro objetivo de reunir los
$122,900.00.para la AAA del 2015.

RAISED UP BY THE
MESSIAH
Last week, when Jesus
referred to the destruction
of the temple, the account
from today’s first reading
is what would have come
to the minds of his
listeners. But, as Jesus
was speaking on a deeper
level, so does today’s first
reading. In the first
paragraph we hear that
Israel had, in effect,
“fallen” already through
its infidelity to the
covenant. Lest we get too
cozy, this account
reminds us that God,
though just, loving, and
merciful, is capable of
punishing sin when that
sin is unrepentant. But we
are also reminded that
God, rich in mercy,
anoints individuals to be
vessels of salvation as
well (in Hebrew, King
Cyrus of Persia is called
“messiah”). In the Gospel
reading, we hear of
another Messiah being
“lifted up” for our
salvation in one of the
best known passages from
the New Testament. As
Lent concludes and we
enter Holy Week, we
need to keep our gaze
steadfast upon the cross of
Christ, the Son of God
who came into the world
to raise us who had fallen.

Fourth Sunday of Lent
It has been said many
times over and in a variety of ways that stewardship is based on gratitude.
Gratitude for what, we
may ask? For the variety
of blessings each of us
receives, understanding
that full well that each of
us is gifted in different
ways and perhaps even in
different measures. However, there is one gift in
which we all share equally.
"For God so loved the
world that he gave his
only son, so that everyone who believes in him
might not perish, but
might have eternal life.
(John 3:16) It is difficult
for us to even conceive of
the magnitude of that
multifaceted gift of his
son Jesus to the fabulous
gift of everlasting life.
Stewardship calls us
to appreciate all of God's
gifts, but if we only focus
on the gifts listed above,
our gratitude should
know no bounds. Pope
Francis has said, "God
never gives someone a
gift they are not capable
of receiving. We all have
the ability to understand
and receive God's gifts."
We need to recognize
God's gifts and especially
during our preparations
for Easter, finding ways
to show and live out our
gratitude.
