Habitat for Humanity

St. Matthew’s Mission Opportunity in Newburgh

Habitat for Humanity St. Matthew’s volunteers will be continuing the mission initiative that Rik has started. One or two days each month over the coming year, a team will head up to Newburgh for an 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. workday (available days are Wednesdays to Saturdays). Presently, St. Matthew’s is supporting the renovation of two houses (a St. Matthew’s sponsored house and a house sponsored in memory of Bonnie Tisi's son, Johnny Trotta.  All parishioners invited to participate in bringing these houses to fruition. This mission effort has the very meaningful attribute of combining our Church’s financial support with the immense satisfaction of hands-on effort.  In addition to helping a community in need, the opportunity for fellowship is rewarding as well.

St. Matthew's is sponsoring a house for Habitat in Newburgh, meaning that we have raised the funds to have our name associated with one particular house.  If you would like to contribute financially to this effort, please make a donation to St. Matthew's with "Habitat for Humanity House" in the memo line.

No experience is required for the work days. Photographs of recent parishioner volunteers at the two house sites can be found below. To pariticpate or for futher information, contact Bonnie Tisi or Roger Vincent.  Children over 16 are welcome to participate as long as accompanied by a parent.
