Cardinal's Appeal 2020
Cardinal's Annual Stewardship Appeal
has begun! Each family in our parish will be given the opportunity to make a pledge to the campaign and help us achieve our goal of $78,000. The Archdiocesan goal is $20 million.
Many of you should have already received a letter from Cardinal Dolan requesting you to help this worthwhile cause. We pray that the Holy Spirit will inspire you to open up your hearts to ways you can give to the

Those Were the Days: Why All in the Family Still Matters
Between 1971 and 1979,
All in the Family
was more than just a wildly popular television sitcom that routinely drew 50 million viewers weekly. It was also a touchstone of American life, so much so that the living room chairs of the two main characters have spent the last 40 years on display at the Smithsonian. How did a show this controversial and boundary-breaking manage to become so widely beloved?
Come join St. Matthew/OLPH parishioner Jim Cullen for an overview, screening and discussion of his new book, Those Were the Days: Why All in the Family Still Matters.
The discussion will be held on Sunday, February 23, from 3 to 5 PM in the OLPH Church Meeting Room. Refreshments will be served.
Copies of Jim Cullen's book will be available for purchase!
CYO Toiletry Drive Underway
Last year, the STMOLPH Saints had great success with our first "stuffed shirt" toiletry drive for the homeless, so we are going to give it another go!
We will also be collecting white XL t-shirts. There will be collection bins at home games for both Ardsley and Hastings gyms. Collection bins will also be set up in the back of each church.
At the end of the season, players will come together to "stuff the shirts" with the toiletries before they are donated.
We will be collecting trial size toiletries:
Planning Catholic Funeral Liturgies Workshop
When facing the loss of a loved one, Catholics are often asked to help plan the funeral liturgy for a family member or friend. Questions about music at the funeral, Scriptural readings, words of remembrance, and other aspects of the wake, the funeral Mass, and the burial service frequently arise. This workshop will assist family members and friends to prepare prayerful and beautiful funeral liturgies that are faithful to Catholic belief and tradition and which give honor to the deceased in Christ.
Join the Archdiocesan Office for Liturgy at this informative workshop at St. Joseph's Seminary. For more information or to register, please
